Hello all! First time posting, and I know this question might be answered somewhere else, but I cannot find it.
I'm starting my first pc build and I am looking to purchase the cooler master 212 evo along with a asus crosshair formula z motherboard. My question is, will I have enough clearance with the cpu fan and motherboard to use ram such as the corsair vengeance? Or do I need to look at as different fan? I am not interested in watercooling.

The clearance question depends on the case, not the motherboard.

As for the RAM - it generally works with finned RAM only if you don't use the first slot.
If you need to use that first slot, get different RAM.

Opps, forgot to say the case. I'm getting the NZXT phantom. The full case, not the mid.

Took me about 8 seconds to find the answer you seek:
Clearance - CPU Cooler 170mm

The EVO is 159mm.
