Will the CM Hyper 212 Evo fit on the ASUS M5A97 mobo?
I'm building a new PC and I'm not sure whether the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO will fit on the ASUS M5A97 Motherboard, and whether there will be a place for a twin memory kits or not.
Does any one have any idea?

you will be able to get memory in the slots, you will need regular height ram. nothing tall or it will be in the way.
it will fit the potential issue is ram heatsink make sure you have low profile ram like this
RAM that is somewhat tall, like G.Skill Ripjaws X, will just barely be too tall, unless you're only using only two RAM slots and use the dual channels furthest away. Alternatively, you could move the fan "up a notch" - but you will lose some efficiency.
I have an ETS-T40, which allows for one more millimeter of clearance, and it barely allow a piece of paper to pass through - too close for comfort.
If you have the before mentioned Corsair Vengeance LP, or G.Skill Ares style of RAM (or just RAM without heat spreaders) you'll be fine.
