Here is a snippet:

Default Cooler

This cooler really did a great job. It looks like it has a nice amount of clearance for large ram modules, like those RipJaws with the big heatsinks, Did it look like it would clear something like that? I would like to see an experiment where you take some fine sandpaper and a mirror and lap it to a mirror like finish. I am curious if it would lower the temps a few degrees. That would make a great follow up article. I was glad to see my Corsair A70 near the top of the heap.

Perhaps we can see this HSF also installed on an AMD socket based motherboard as not everyone owns an Intel CPU? As actionjksn also asked, how about using tall DIMMs like Ripjaws or Dominator? Other than that, nice review!

Sorry, but we can't test every cooler in both Intel and AMD motherboards.

It will depend on the specific motherboard.

It seems that you can make the install easier by unmounting the fans, installing the heatsink, then reinstalling the fans once the heatsink is installed. Yes?

It doesn't help.
