Maybe you can rotate the heatsink or put the fan on another side. I wouldn't be concerned if the fan was just touching a RAM heatsink. RAM doesn't really get that hot.

It not actually the ram heatsink, it's one of the motherboard heatsinks.

Was going to be a tight fit anyway. The HR-02 Macho is big!

The HR-02 Macho does not fit on the ASrock Z77 Extreme 4? Are you sure? Their so commonly speced together ...

Well, im sure I could have got it in there if I had spent more time on it but at the time it seemed more trouble than it was worth. The ram I have also has a heatsink and that made it a little more awkward. I couldn't get at the side to attach the screw that holds on the cooler.

First time build also so happy enough with how it all went in the end.

Sweeeet! So it all works fine, is it?
Hopefully mine will be here by friday too, so I can have the long weekend spent with the comp hahaha
Did you order a spearate cooler for the processor? If it is too big maybe someone could get it off you from here?

I actually had a problem once I had everything installed tried to play battlefield 3. I couldn't get it to run and spent literally 10 hours reading over hundreds of pages of posts in relation to battlefield 3 problems. It seemed like there were thousands of people out there who were in the same boat as me, yet no one could provide a solution. 

Came across something on the ea forum that mentioned a piece of software that came with the driver disk for my  Asrock z77 extreme4 motherboard, that interfered with battlefield 3. I can't remember the name of it off the top of my head but I disabled it last night and have been able to play since. 

Very satisfied that I was able to get it running despite the lack of help from dice or ea directly.

No problem. I plan on joining up on a couple of the forums I was searching for answers on, and putting it up for others to see.

Anyway, the problem was Virtue MVP for anyone interested.

Hope it helps someone out.

Well thank you very much!

I hope yours is delivered today. I wasnt expecting mine the day it arrived. It was still saying on the dhl.de site that it was in the depot for sorting or something like that but it arrived ahead of schedule.

Hope something similar happens to you.

Anyway, enjoy the weekend.
