I'm putting together a vid editing rig with some previous parts and some new. I need CPU and mobo to complete it. I'm getting an i7 4770k and am looking at an ASRock extreme4
I have 16Gb (4x4) High Profile GSkill Ripjaws RAM
I also have a 212 EVO cooler. In some of the reviews of the ASRock extreme4 on Newegg, some reviewers said that you may lose the first RAM slot if you are using a bulky cooler. But no actual specifics are mentioned. Bulky? So is that bulky as in Noctua NH-D14 bulky or also a 212 EVO?
Does anyone know that mobo well, and would you know whether my 4 RAM and a 212 EVO would fit without issue? If it's just a matter of the fan interfering then there are workarounds for that. But if it's the rad fins blocking it then it wouldn't work.
