there is a 2-3mm gap which is just nice. sadly many massive dual towers will obstruct the memory slots closer to the cpu.

Just brought 1pcs Noctua U12P SE2 to VR office to test. Seems like this particular model wont block the dimm slot and dont need to compromise the first slot of PCI-E.

Ask nicely of the VR guys to try with low profile RAM, keep your fingers crossed...

I definitely would try.

Some of my KVR has Hynix H9c chips which can possibly run at 1866C9 like the branded sticks. imo for the longer run, higher RAM capacity has almost always outlasted speed.

And still Noctua intros a special version for LGA2011, huh?
Noctua Presents NH-D14 Special Edition for LGA2011 | techPowerUp

Quote:
"Hardware enthusiasts have every right to be excited about Intel's upcoming Sandy Bridge-E processors, but to get the most out of it, you'll definitely need a high quality cooling solution", says Mag. Roland Mossig, Noctua CEO. "Our flagship model NH-D14 has earned a reputation as one of the finest high-end quiet coolers on the market, so we thought that this should be a perfect match. The new special edition for LGA2011 will keep your Sandy Bridge-E CPU cool no matter what you throw at it, and it will do so at minimum noise levels, thus appealing to overclockers and quiet enthusiasts alike."
The new PWM fans are a nice upgrade!
