Both the Intel and AMD boards are from MSI under the MSI Gaming series which looks almost identical. Below are images on how the coolers look with the boards.
SE 204K – Single Fan
SE 204K – Dual Fan
SE 214X – Single Fan
SE 214X – Dual Fan
The two coolers promises maximum memory clearance which we will see below. Using a pair of Kingston HyperX T1 memory modules which have tall heat spreaders, it will certainly test the memory clearance of these coolers.
AMD – SE 204K
AMD – SE 214X
Intel – SE 204K
Intel – SE 214X
Both the coolers clear all memory slots for all the platforms I tested.
