    For what it is worth, I use one on a micro-ATX (Maximus V Gene) board with TALL G.Skill Trident X RAM sticks with no clearance issues by moving the fan to the middle and the other as "pull" out the back of my mid-tower Arc Mini.

    If you get a chance you should test using Cougar CF-V12HP8 fans.

    Little noisier than the noctua fans at full speed but they move and direct air pretty good and you can slow them down easily, i'm hooked on them

    7970 but you have to use the 2nd slot, so limited to 8x but I lost no performance doing so.

    Would there be any drop in performance if I place the fans in pull orientation instead of push orientation? I have Corsair Vengeance RAM, and I would rather not remove the heatsinks if I can get through without doing so.

    Also, I have someone confirm that it fits fine in Raven RV03 case. Is that actually true? Further, would the fan orientation have an impact on this particular case?
