Hey there! I am creating my first PC build and I am super excited about it. Here is a link to all my PC components I am getting if it helps https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/Z29qzY

My biggest concern is that I am not entirely sure if my CPU cooler is going to fit into my case? and if it does is it going to be a close fit or is going to have some room left? I have heard mixed opinions so it would be nice to get something a bit more clear. I also am wondering if there will be enough ram clearance on the motherboard after the cooler is installed to install the ram? I am using low profile ram which should help but for anyone who can answer my question it is much appreciated! :)

Hi Ethan, good choice in cpu cooler. I have one and it works amazing.

According to the Gamer's Nexus review, the 275R has clearance for a 170mm heat sink: https://www.gamersnexus.net/hwreviews/3254-corsair-275r-case-review-thermals-quality-noise

I would say you're good to go as you'll have around 10mm for safety margin. Maybe just double check to see where the 160mm measurement is taken from for the cooler though. I can't recall off the top of my head if it's measured to the top plate on the fin stack or to the end of the heat pipes that stick out the top.
