Hey, nice build. i have looked at your board. I am not sure what build you are going for but i will assume gaming. 3200 is way more than fine. 3600 is just overkill and is not necessary. but your pc i guess

Try a different more high profile cooler instead of new ram. or a new bigger case.

and tell your friend to research more.

the vengeance rgb sticks are a lot taller than most other sticks, can't get them into the slots even if I unmount the radiator they're too tall /:

Move the rad to the front of your case? Problem solved..

If Vengeance RGB Pro aren't going to fit, neither are TridentZ RGB. If you're having issues with RAM compatibility, your best bet is to get a low profile kit, like Vengeance LPX.

Not entirely his friend's fault. These things happen.

Moments a picture or video could speak for everything.. I cannot figure how an AIO would have a height clearance problem. I know RAM can be a bit tall especially RGB RAM but.. it's an AIO you have that doesn't come into contact with the RAM at all. How are you trying to mount this..? Have you tried other orientations? If the tubes are in the way, okay.. Literally rotate the AIO mount. Sure it won't look perfect, but better than having a PC without any cooling?
