Hello folks. I have followed many of the reviews you guys have done in the past few months, great work. Figured I should join the community.

I am looking to build a rig very soon and I will have some questions. Been a few years since I built my current setup.

Welcome dude, awesome you have liked the reviews. All the team here like a bit of ego bolstering like that.

Not sure if I should ask here, but here we go.

I am looking to get the following to upgrade my rig.

AMD 1090T

Crosshair IV Fomula

Dominator GT Memory 8gb *I intend to do some video editing*

I am considering the Noctua D14 but I am wondering if I will need to remove the top heat sink on the Dominator GT memory to clear the Noctua. I saw on one of the reviews with the Rampage III and the Noctua D14 that the top heat sink to remove to clear. I did recently see the Redline Mushkin memory review and saw it cleared no problem.

What other memory recommendations do you have for this AMD setup? I am looking to overclock.

My other thought is to go with the Corsair H70, where clearance would not be an issue.

Thanks,

Cameron

Alright, thanks for help.

Update:

Just researching and found that Noctua says that the Ridgeback is not compatible. Would you say that is wrong?

Also what is the best thermal compound these days?

I watched the review of the MSI 870a Fuzion Power edition and now I am contemplating that board vs. the crosshair IV formula.

I know lucid is a big difference. Any other things that stand out?

Where can I buy one, having trouble finding one online?

Thanks
