Will this fit?

  1. I want to use a Blue Orb ll (CL-P0257) on my ASUS A8N-SLI motherboard and need to know if the cooling unit will allow room for all 4 memory slots to be filled. I plan on installing 4 Corsair, 1 gig sticks and am not sure if this heat sink will be either narrow enough or high enough to go over the memory. Please respond if you are familiar with this cooler. I can't find anywhere that gives the actual dimensions. If it will fit, that is a good enough answer for me.

    Golden Orb and Blue Orb 2 are pretty much the same in dimensions though the Blue Orb is a bit bigger. Its too hard to say but the first 2 ram slots might be unusable.

    Yea i remember seeing a review that said on most motherboards the first 2 RAM slots were unusable. :(
