I'm planning to get this RAM:

With this CPU air cooler:

On this Mobo:

In this case:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The question is, will the Phantek fit on that board over that RAM without sticking beyond the case door line?? I hadn't even considered this until I watched a review on the phantek and realized I might have a problem on my hands since I have a mid-tower. In the video I watched:

He literally has his 140mm fan up against his RAM module and it causes the fan to push out away from the motherboard a fair bit. I don't know if I can do that on my case and still close the door. O.o Actual height of RAM would be good, too. I haven't bought the RAM modules yet, and I was told the Phantek is one of the best, so I'm really hoping they are compatible.
Please help O.o

Tradesman1 A picture is worth a thousand words.
From what I can see, there would be severaloptions, assuming the pushed up fan touched the side panel.
1. remove it entirely.
2. replace it with a 120mm fan.
3. go with lo profile ram which looks to solve the issue.
