I am planning to get a Dark Rock Pro 4 CPU cooler from be quiet! alongside a 32 GB kit of Trident Z RGB ram, however i don't know if that cooler has enough clearance for that ram, and was looking for some confirmation that I can use them together.

They will fit.

On the first Ram slot (nearest to the CPU) and the third one for enabling dual channel mode.

You may need to raise the front fan 5mm.

  • Note: Buy a dual 32GB kit instead off a 32GB quad kit. LGA1151 socket boards doesn't support quad channel and the price comes cheaper if you buy a dual kit.

Thanks! And I am only considering buying a quad kit to populate all the Ram slots, purely for aesthetics since the Ram is RGB.
