Hi all

Thinking i'm going to get this and put it all together but saw somewhere that the cooler might not work in some configurations with some RAM... it wasn't quite my set up but wondered what people had experience on SB Z77 builds and I guess the first few IB builds. My plan would be to mount it blowing front to back given the vent configuration on the case and my plan not to open the top up... but this would put it near the memory.

Also, wondered about the memory compatability - I want 16GB, will this work?

Sorry I can't link but as a newb i haven't had enough posts!

Intel Core i7 3770K
Zalman CNPS12X
Corsair 550D Obsidian
Kingston 16GB (4x4GB) DDR3 1866MHz HyperX XMP Memory Kit CL9

Also, any thoughts on whether the onboard sound is any good? Thinking of putting this in:

Creative SoundBlaster Recon3D PCI-E Soundcard

I have the rest of the spec planned (SSD, HDD, GPU, PSU, Optical drive, OS) - I haven't just forgotten them!
