My System Specs


In case anybody is interested in pairing the Hyper 212+ with a MSI 790FX-GD70, here's a few more shots to show clearances.

There's at least a 1" clearance between the cooler and a video card installed in the first slot.

Plenty of clearance between the first set of memory and the cooler with the stock fan installed. Higher than normal memory sets would have no problems even with a 38mm fan.

Standard height memory can be installed in the closest slots with the fan installed, but it is a tight fit. A 38mm fan would be tight over the memory but it "should" fit. Installation/removal however would require removal of the fan.

Plenty of room for a 38mm fan to clear the heatsink.

That's all I've got for now. I'll be running some load temp benchmarks on it later today/tonight, and will update the review thread with a chart once I've crunched the numbers.
