I'm looking to get a pair of matched ram with fast timings and was wondering if the Corsair 1GB DDR XMS3200XL Pro TwinX (2x512MB) fits. The thing that worries me is that the heatsink is pretty thick. Anyone tried yet?

I don't think head sinks are going to fit. The ram sticks lay one right on top of the other pretty much, so it would be a tight fit if it did. I sugguest just going to crucial.com and pick up a match pair there.

ANY memory with heat spreaders will not fit AFAIK.
