I'm looking at building a system using the Asus sabertooth z87 motherboard and the intel 4770k CPU.

For the cooling I was considering a BeQuiet dark rock pro. Would this fit on this board?

What ram would be good for this as well? I know it would need to be fairly low profile, but was wondering if anyone had any recommendations?

Thank you

Yes it will fit your motherboard. As for RAM, this cooler allows 43mm of clearance only, so kits without enormous heatsink would fit. This include Corsair Vengeance LP, GSKill RipjawX, RipjawZ, Crucial Ballistic Tactical,... and any ram sticks that don't have heatsink.

Could also look at Trident, if thinking high performance, the upper fin is removeable

I have a similar question regarding the Sabertooth and i7-4770k. I was thinking of getting a Thermaltake Frio. This there enough clearance near the RAM slots for that cooler? What other coolers should I consider?

I used the Zalman CNPS14X but nobody else in the world will use that on this Mo-Bo.... will they?

It keeps it REALLY COOL. but you have to be really good with putting things together dexterously.

I would reccomend this alternative (CNPS9900) if you like `style` rather than `substance, efficiency & pain`.

P.S.
I am getting great results with 16GB of A-Data 1866 RAM (Red).
