Scythe Big Shuriken Clearance

Post by darunium » Fri Jun 17, 2011 5:04 pm

Finally an answer! The clearance for RAM beneath the Scythe Big Shuriken is ~32mm (a little more from the height of the CPU).

I know I've wondered that on several occasions over the last few years and I suspect many others have.

It's still a huge pain to install as it is hard to push the pushpins down from beneath the fins, and near impossible if you already have the mainboard installed in the case, but nevertheless if you're looking for feasibility there it is.

Any word on what the clearance beneath the Scythe Kozuti coming out is?

Judging from the pictures in fudzilla's review it just clears the ram in height, but touches it on the side.
I was surprised it's wider than the keep-out area around the CPU socket.
