I am looking to pick up an aftermarket cooler for my FX-8320 CPU. I'm not looking to do much overclocking, but might delve into that in the future. I mainly am gaming and streaming video.

My rig's specs are:

Antec Sonata Proto Case
ASUS M5A97 MOBO
4X XMS3 4GB Ram units (16GB)
EVGA GeForce GTX 770 SC
Xonar DG Soundcard

I want to be sure the cpu cooler will fit before I buy and realize it is too close to the RAM or chipset.

Any help would be great. Thanks!

You can raise the fan on the cooler to clear the ram modules.
