As long as you have low profile ram it's a great cooler for you, and compatible with your components.

+1!

What case are you using, BTW? Height clearance can also be an issue with smaller cases.

Height clearance regarding the case should be good. However, with your chosen memory you may need to move the fan to the other side of the heatsink. The fan will work on either side of the 212 EVO. Just make sure the air is exhausted out the rear of the case.

Have fan on the EVO pushing air thru the heatsink towards your rear fan , don't remove rear exhaust fan.

Best solution

+1. You keep both the rear exhaust fan and the one attached to the EVO. You want them both moving air in the same direction.
