I was wondering since I can not really find documentation on it, if the NZXT H440 case has enough space for ram with heat spreaders.

This is the build I am thinking about (it is my first so feel free to comment on terrible decisions)

Yes, the RAM will fit in your case, check this out, it might be useful for compatibility checks.

About your rig, I would suggest changing the i7 4820K for the i7 4770K, and the motherboard for a nice Z87 one. LGA 2011 boards and processors are really expensive and, unless you want to spend a LOT on a i7 4930K or 4960X for total performance, the 4820K won't change much. Check the updated rig:

I recommend getting 120hz monitors even if you can only afford 1 or 2 right now. With 2 gtx 770's it would be a a shame to cap the frames at 60fps
