If you have the room to move the fan higher up on the heatsink, you may be able to get away with the 212 + or EVO.

Failing that having the fan on pull on the other side or going with all in one liquid coolers may be your next option.

If the sticks had been just a bit shorter, they would fit under a NH-D14 cooler.

Corsair H80i. It won't interfere with your RAM at all. It moves the bulk of the cooling solution to an exhaust port. Makes it easier to work around the PC in general.

Must resist urge to buy H80i "just to play with".......

I've been using these corsair units for a few years now. I'm not a big overclocker, and these don't work miracles, but they're better than most air coolers and keep the work area clean. This is my primary reason for using them. They don't put a big protruding hunk of metal in the middle of your workspace inside the case. When you have larger hands, you can appreciate these things.

I have come up with many little ways to work in crammed cases :) 

My overclocks are quite limited as well(2600K @ 4.4, not pushing anything that hard)

I was always curious if I could get similar performance from something like the H70/80 to my NH D14 because my overclock is not pushed that far.

I will stop hi-jacking the thread now.

haha :D  im scared of water cooling because I don't want it to leak onto my components ? :(  if I get low profile vengeance ram can I use any big cpu cooler like the nh d14 ?

Yes, you can.

You can use the CM212+ or evo(with the current memory) as well as long as you have room to move the heatsink's fan up or are willing to run the fan in pull on the other side.

Brave users can CUT the NH D14 to fit the memory :)

You can IF you have room to move the fan on the memory side UP then you can, but if not, you will be limited to a fan on one side.

I have not had a 3770k yet so I can not comment on the temps, but with that much cooling power, either one work work well.

At stock a 3770k is not a power hog by any means.
