I am sorry but no as I have not seen that CPU Cooler and it will also depend on the MB layout as well. IE on some MB's it will not be an issue.

FYI I am using the Asus pt6 delux (ver 1)
I think it is going to be close as it looks like the part of the v10 cooler that covers ram moduals seems to go up at a slight angle as it extends away from the cpu.
Is there any warranty issues with taking off the teeth part of the heatsink on the dominators when there is going to be a noctua fan blowing 50+ cfm directly downward on them? I have a feeling that the fins on the dominator heatsinks in the first 2 or 3 dimms may touch the bottom of the v10 cooler.
Its going to be very close clearance wise for sure---
thanks for the reply Ram-Guy

You cannot remove the heat spreaders if you do it will likely damage the modules.

I think he's talking about removing that small part at the top which is removable.

If he has the Dominator GT then yes it is removable but if they are the normal GT then it will not be removable.

If he has the Dominator GT version then yes if he has the Dominator then no he cannot, if there are screws across the top of the H/S then yes you can remove them. If there are no screws then they are not removable.

There's no GT version of the TR3X6G1600C8D on the website FYI. New part? :)

Hi guys and thanks :)

My mem sticks indeed have the 3 small allen head screws along the top.
Good to know that the top portion (the cool looking teethy part) is removable .
I hope i dont have to remove them cause they look very nice as is (even tho I cant see 'em under the dominator cooler with the 2 fans).
I'll be getting the v10 cooler nest Tuesday to replace the v8 and will no longer be using the dominator airlflow cooler (surprisingly the loudest fans in my case--and smallest). Clearance may be an issue with the teeth on top of the sticks but since they're removable, should have plenty of room

Planning on replacing the stock cooler fans of the v10 with noctua p12's

enclosed is a pict of my current setup

thanks again Ram guy and Wired- you guys rock!

ps. you didnt mention about removing fins voiding warranty so i hope its safe to assume that it wont

Looks pretty tight there but they may have 2" of clearance and if so it should work just remove the fins.
