Hello!


My specs are:
MSI Z390 Ace
NZXT Kraken X72
G.SKILL Trident RGB 2x8GB

Now I need 32GB of RAM, so i decided to buy next two sticks, but (as I read before buying whole computer) Kraken is blocking first DIMM slot. It isn't giving much pressure, but anyway I want to ask. Is it safe to have pressure on my memory? Can my RAM slot/or RAM break because of it? If I mount all of them, the first is only a little bit touching second. I know i can rotate pump, but it won't look the same ;). Also, I know Kraken X73/Z73 can rotate LED, but I don't want spend more money on cooler, only for one thing.

Cheers!
