Hi i'm planning to buy this RAM

http://dynaquestpc.com/product/gskill-ripjaws-x-8gb-4gb...

and this GPU

http://dynaquestpc.com/product/palit-geforce-gtx-760-je...

This is my RIG
CPU: intel core i5 4570
COOLER deepcool ice blade pro v1 (I already have this one from my OLD PC.)
CASE : Antec GX 700
POWER SUPPLY: antec VP550P
HDD: Seagate 500 GB HDD
Motherboard: gigabyte B85M-HD3



The cooler will possibly block one slot of the RAM slots, according to the deepcool ice blade pro website the clearance of the CPU cooler from the surface to the fan is 36 MM ( http://www.deepcool-us.com/Product/ICE_BLADE_PRO/ ) while the height of the RAM according to G skill website is 40 MM ( http://www.gskill.com/en/product/f3-10666cl9d-4gbxl- ). I will not going to over clock I just want to lower the temperature to my CPU.

my question is

1. Will the RAM height will still FIT if I put first the RAM?
2. Is it good to buy the G skill ares instead? (http://dynaquestpc.com/product/gskill-ares-8gb-4gbx2-dd...)
3. My last resort is forget my aftermarket cooler and use the given cooler by intel which I know will give a very high temperature to my CPU.

I live here in the Philippines my previous computer is an AMD Athlon 4200+ which I overclocked it to 3.0 GHZ.

This cooler gives more room for memory.

But not bad idea to buy ARES memory. I like Gskill RipjawsX better. But hard to tel do they fit under that cooler.
