Hello,

I am thinking of going with the build below but I have one question: Your site gave me a "Compatibility Note: - High-Profile RAM might require slight CPU-Fan up-shift." Given this, what CPU-Fan would you recommend? Thanks!

CPU: AMD Ryzen 9 5950X 3.4GHz 16-Core Processor ($1099.95)
CPU Cooler: be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 4 ($84.90)
Motherboard: MSI X570 Tomahawk ATX AM4 ($291.38)
GPU: Nvidia RTX 2080 TI 11GB - MSI Gaming X ($1799.66)
Memory: 64GB (4 x 16GB) G.Skill Trident Z Neo DDR4-3600 C16 ($364.99)
Storage PCIe-SSD: Sabrent Rocket 2TB NVMe Gen4 M.2 Solid State Drive ($299.98)
Power Supply: EVGA 650 B5, 80 Plus Bronze 650W Power Supply ($86.99)
Case: NZXT H510 ATX Mid Tower Case ($149.99)
Total: $4177.84

That Warning is just a note that you'll have to slightly move up the outer fan on the cpu cooler to make room for the tall G.Skill NEO RAM. It's still compatible and I recommend it without changes. Of course, those prices on the GPU are abysmal, but that's just how the current market situation is unfortunately.
