ahhhh ok so i found a picture of the dark rock pro 4. correct me if i’m wrong but if the dim slot i’m using is directly under the fan it’s 40mm of room and 46mm in between the fan and towers? with that being said the trident z is 44mm tall so i might have to just adjust the fan up a bit?If all of the involved components adhere to normal specs there should be no problems.
First with respect to fitting into place and secondly with respect to recommended clearances for air flows/cooling.
However, to be certain you will need to look up the physical measurements (specs) and then measure and otherwise work out how things will actually fit together.
Check Product specs via Technical Spec sheets, User Guides/Manuals, Service Manuals, etc..
If the available space is (for example only) 3/4" and the component is 1", then the component will not fit.
Use a simple sketch to compare actual sizes to available dimensions.
Avoid tight fits that may encroach on the tolerances.
for sure so i’ll be good just have to make some fan adjustments?
awesome thank you guys i’m stoked to give this air cooler a shot. trying to maximize performance with being quietG.SKILL F4-3200C14D-32GVK DIMMs are 42mm high, which is what I have installed on an MSI - X470 Gaming M7 AC. The Dark Rock Pro 4 cooler went-in easily, without having to remove the front fan--and the fan does not touch the tops of the DIMMs.
You might have to jump the fan clips upward by only one fin to have adequate clearance.
for sure my main concern is the 2070 i bought with the poor reviews from asus time will tell when i get the rest of the parts to buildIt's a nice cooler, and very quiet, IMO.
Installation (on an AMD MB, at least) is a lot easier than some of the YT reviewers claim; so don't be put off by whinge-laden reviews by people who aren't well-acquainted with the proper use of a Phillip's screwdriver.
