yes you can install it to your mobo. what you should really worry about is your case. you can check here the compatabilities. also with such big tower coolers low profile memory modules are prefered. what budget do you have for the tower?

prevent from interfering with the cooler itself but you wont have such problem. i had noctua d14 in mind! its quite bigger :)

if that the product 412 x 180 x 412mm its only 180mm wide and the noctua with out the fan(mounted) is 165mm. if you also consider the mobo sitting on standoffs, i dont think it will fit. try finding a wider tower at least 190mm wide
