Wc people aint gonna care too much about this, but even tho I like the looks of these sticks, the higher the profile, the lesser the options for cpu fan options.

It`s difficult enough having a high bridge cooler, the pwm cooler, then some ram profiles that are darn tall b4 u even put a fan on them. It can lead u to 3 sides of a cpu-tower cooler not being accessible.

Not necessarily the ram manufacturers fault 100%, but they are at the disadvantage of having dimm slots directly to the rear of the cpu area. So if u want to blow across ur cpu and out the rear - ur knackered.

Have seen an Intel i7 mobo where they`ve moved the dimm array to above the cpu and parallel to pci slots, which could be interesting - atleast in this fashion, the air cooling techiques can attempt to flow 1 way.

Probably great ram outside of the rant tho
