Default Corsair Carbide 275R & Hydro H100i V2 cooler - Top mounted?

Hello all.

I am building a PC soon, and looking at the Carbide 275R. I will be using the Hydro H100i V2 cooler with the 240mm radiator.

I have recently read (fortunately before ordering) that I won't be able to mount the radiator at the top of this case due to clearance issues with the RAM?

I have just received the Corsair Vengeance Pro RGB 3200 16GB. But this is quite tall for RAM, so I assuming I will definitely have a problem?

I haven't opened the RAM so can return it no problem at all.

Will the Vengeance LPX fit instead as this appears to be a lower profile?

Thanks in advance for any advice.

you can try replacing the stock fans that come with the Hydro H100i V2 for some slim ones.

The Vengeance LPX are about the lowest height RAM with heatspreaders that you will find. If the problem is something that you can resolve by lower height RAM, I would assume that would take care of your clearance issues.

On the otherhand, I'd probably recommend running your h100 at the front of the case for optimal temps and performance.
