I wonder if (and how) I will be able to fill up all my memory slots AND use a big aftermarket CPU cooler (like the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO or the Noctua NH-D14, as examples).
- Will I need to buy only low profile memory?
- How tall can my memory sticks can be? (Or how can I know how tall they can be?)
- How can I know how tall memory sticks are BEFORE to buy them?
Here is some background informations: I plan to buy a Skylake (socket 1151) processor (maybe a Core i7, maybe a Xeon E3, still not sure about it). But, three things I'm sure about: I will buy a Z170 motherboard (with a 1151 socket), I will fill out ALL the memory slots AND I want to have an aftermarket CPU cooler.
Thanks for your advices!
If you wonder why I plan to buy that much memory, don't worry, I simply plan to run lots of virtual machines simultaneously...
