Cooler Master v8 GTS in Asus Crosshair Formula Z?

Well, I am looking into purchasing a Cooler Master V8 GTS, and I was just curious, does anyone have any experience with this cooler in the Asus Crosshair Formula Z board. I have very low profile RAM so that should not be an issue, but I was worried about the heat sink on the board being too close/tall. I would just like some first hand experience for verification.

Thanks!

Sorry I cannot personally "vouch" for this cooler but I do have the Thermaltake Frio and it works fine (with that info you could compare sizes). I did have a past student who DID use this cooler with your motherboard and I believe he was very happy with it.

Alright, thanks for the help. I actually ended up purchasing the cooler and had no issues installing it.
