The cooler will work with any DRAM - the height of the fan is adjustable, I run 32GB 4x8GB of Tridents on my IB build with the fan raised a bit, 4x8GB under another EVO on my Sandy Bridge build with Ripjaws X....as far as the DRAM itself, my 1st pick for the last year+ has been the Tridents, followed by the Snipers and then the Ripjaws (either X or Z models)

For maximum performance, the G.Skill Trident X series is best. The top fins of the heat spreader can be removed, so they will clear any CPU cooler you have including the Hyper 212 and many larger ones.

If you only remove the top red fins, everything will be fine and still very cool.

If you completely remove the heat spreader, heat is not dispersed as efficiently, but the modules can still run just fine. Temps will still be the same, just more concentrated.
