    i have a i5 750 on a Asus P7H55D evo board, which seems to have the RAM slots very close to the cpu. i have very tall Corsair Dominator ram (with heatsink fins), will i need a small cpu cooler? or will something like the Thermalright MUX 120 or Sythe MUGEN-2 Rev.B fit without covering any ram slots? (i am going to be using all 4)
    thanks for any help, or any suggestions of other coolers which would work for an overclock of around 3.5ghz.

    does anyone have any of these on a small mobo who can tell me what fits?
    thanks for any help
