Now thats what I like to see.

Yeah those R4's are killer for Heatsinks. Very good Static Pressure, and they look damn sexy while doing it.

Is that the flexible cooler you tell us few weeks ago? For sure a good price and good performance but unfortunately not better then my megahalem so no good point to disassemble my PC again:(

Well I have think about it but I was sure it was not it because of the other review I read about it. One more time you caught me AkG. Another great review and can't wait to see the next one!

Hey guys I have a question about RAM compatibility with this heatsink. In the review it said that they had to move the RAM from its usual slot because it was hitting the fan (AMD system). Is this because the heatspeader was too tall, or because RAM plain can't fit underneath the fan?

This is the picture I am talking about:



Would I be able to fit this OCZ memory completely underneath the heatsink? I am only interested in it if I can use all four RAM slots.

The ram was just too tall. Regular height sticks should be able to squeeze in under it. It will be a tight fit, but they "should" fit.
