Fitting concerns with G.skill + Phantek

I'm planning to get this RAM:

With this CPU air cooler:

On this Mobo:

In this case:

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

  1. I think you will be ok.
    But... why not just avoid the issue and buy a low profile kit in the first place?
    This kit has the same specs and is actually cheaper. more so with the 10% promo code:

    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.
