Long story short I was gifted a mobo and cpu. Picked up a cooler master hyper 212 evo thinking it just had to fit the socket and case.

Now I’m reading that the hyper cpu fan interferes with the first ram slot on the Asus Maximus VI Formula mobo. Some people say to use low profile ram which I don’t have.

The mobo manual recommends using ram slots 1 & 3. My question is, can I just use slots 2 & 4 if I change it in bios? Any detriment to that?

According to ASUS support:

“It supports two (2) RAM modules inserted into either DIMM_A1 and DIMM_B1 or DIMM_A2 and DIMM_B2 as one pair of Dual-channel memory configuration. However, it is recommended to use DIMM_A1 and DIMM_B1 for better compatibility.”

So it works... but it doesn’t...?

Trying to figure out what “for better compatibility” means.

Why don't you actually try and see what the outcome is? I believe better compatibility means testing of supported modules was done using the recommended configuration, so you too should use the same configuration to maximise the chance of your set of DIMMs to work with the board. It may also mean some modules may not work if not installed in the recommended configuration.

Because I haven't opened the hyper 212 box yet. Weighing the likelihood of a good outcome against the effort of returning it.

I was referring to the RAM modules! Install them on slots b2 and a2 and see if the system posts.

LOL oh yeah. Sorry... thought you meant the whole process including CPU cooler. Good idea I'll give it a shot.
