    Hey guys. I just bought a GIGABYTE Z390 AORUS PRO. I am going to pair it up with the Cooler Master Hyper 212 RGB Black Edition cooler.
    I was wondering if anyone knew if I would have enough clearance for the RAM. The RAM is going to be G.SKILL TridentZ RGB Series 16GB (2x 8GB). Does anyone know if I'll have enough space for the RAM with that cooler?

    Thanks a lot in advance.

    Did you lookup the CPU cooler clearance and the height of the RAM? Should pretty much tell you based off that.

    No I did not. Well I did look up the Cooler dimensions but not sure how to get a good idea even if I had the RAM height to be honest. Sorry I am new into all this stuff.

    I would pay a little bit more and get a Megen 5 cooler, I have a 212 on my fx-8320 and if I put in another set of ram. I would have to move the fan up to clear the ram. But a https://www.amazon.com/Mugen-Rev-CPU-Cooler-Support/dp/B06ZYB8K77/ref=sxin_1_ac_d_rm?ac_md=0-0-bXVnZW4gNQ==-ac_d_rm&crid=I5LJB1Z6X6NK&keywords=mugen+5&pd_rd_i=B06ZYB8K77&pd_rd_r=987d9cd3-7c5a-4af8-b899-cdfe5a2208e2&pd_rd_w=7XsOa&pd_rd_wg=JVbfG&pf_rd_p=2938a786-9bec-4d37-8c06-456e3edce5d1&pf_rd_r=E9K57MQRN6SGNEMSM6AV&psc=1&qid=1571720728&sprefix=mugen,aps,197 will have the clearance. As long as these coolers have the clearance in the case for them.

    I did with my RipJawX. It was tight enough that I had to bend the bottom 2-3 fins of the heatsink. That was the OG 212 though, design has changed since.
