Asus z87 pro cpu cooler

I currently have Asus Z87 pro mobo, looking for a good quiet dual fans for the mobo. ready for over clocking 4670k.
Case: Corsair 300R

I have 2 pair of rams (both corsair)
1st pair 3cm (xm3)
2nd pair 5cm (vengeance with spikes)

It will be sub 60 pound

No water cooling since I've been told that it would not last long (3-6yrs).
Prefer something that have to fit as I've brought one before and doesn't fit the case properly. Also the Asus Z87 pro mobo cpu positioning is close to the ram slots!

Thx in advance.

    The most popular recommendation is the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO. The "Best" cooler is the Noctura NH D14.

    Thx Yogi

    The link is what I wanted to see! In fact its perfect as it uses the same mobo and ram!
    NH D14 is sth I thinking but I a bit scared if it doesn't fit my case so I might go with ND U12P!
    My old case has an Arctic Cooling 13 Pro sticking out (lucky thing was there a hole for a 140mm fan in that position so I took it out and let the thing stick out)
