It is huge though. Blocks my front two ram slots so that I need to have Low profile ram to get it to fit. I am using it on a crosshair v board so it might be different for intel.

Friendly reminder if you use all 4 ram slots with heatspreaders, install the ram before mounting the d14 or else you won't be able to squeeze them in.
And make sure your RAM isn't too tall, stuff like the Corsair vengeance (full/original) kits don't fit underneath.

Happy oc'n!
