Anyone running a Corsair H80 in a Silverstone FT02?

Anyone running a Corsair H80 in a Silverstone FT02?
I am leaning toward a Silverstone FT02 for my workstation build. I am also interested in the Corsair H80 to give me easier access to the RAM on the x79 motherboard.

Is anyone using this combination? What I really want to know is if there is a problem with clearance between the RAM and the bottom fan of the H80 when it is mounted to the top.

Thanks.

Never mind. It will work, but I can do a H100 and put it on the bottom of the FT02 as long as it doesn't interfere with the video card length. I am actually still researching cases to determine the one I want the most. I think I might just do air cooling for the cooling of the Intel i7 3930k, but I like the Corsair coolers due to leaving the RAM easier to get to when time to add more or troublshoot.

I have decided against this case. It limits video card options due to the cards being vertical instead of horizontal. For this case, it is best to have a card with a fan on the end facing down.
