I've recently purchased some new RAM and it is 3mm taller than my old RAM. Sadly, this means that it is too tall to sit under my CPU fan (there is physically not enough room). I knew getting that fan would make me regret it one day, never thought it would be for RAM though...
So, I'm now looking into options.. I don't want to get new RAM again (that just seems pointless) and there's no guarentee it would fit anyway. I would prefer not to get a new CPU fan as I love the one I've got and it is absolutely astoundingly good at keeping my PC cool (and it makes zero noise). So I guess the only option is to upgrade my motherboard and get one with RAM that sits at least half an inch further away from the CPU than my current board (also one with 4 slots rather than 2 would be nice).
But I'm not sure how easy it is to do this or if I'm just being plain stupid for even thinking it... Perhaps there's an easier way, or maybe you lot think getting a new CPU fan (again) would just be the easiest and I'll have to live with it..?
My current motherboard is a Gigabyte, GA-78LMT-S2P, with an AMD FX-6300 CPU. Any help / tips on this is greatly appreciated.
