CM Hyper 212 EVO, would I need low profile RAM?

Hi, was wondering if I decided to buy a cm hyper 212 EVO/Plus, would I need low profile RAM? I plan on getting Thermaltake a31 case or corsair 400r. Original RAM for my build was g skill ripjaws x (2x4). Will be using either fx 6300, 8320, 8350, with either a Gigabyte 970A-UD3P, or Gigabyte 990FXA UD3. Will be getting 270x/280 ( probably from Gigabyte, XFX or ASUS ). Just reading some reviews on it and some people say its really tall. Now none of these parts are ordered yet, just planning for the future. Probably going to order around September, just trying to get everything set for now. If I do need LP RAM please tell, or as an alternate, you could suggest a case that is similar to the 400r or a31 ( I really like the looks of these cases ) that would fit it with normal RAM, that'd be great too. Thanks in advance :)


EDIT: If you're going to suggest a case, my max budget for it is ~$80

    rams with heat sink will have no problem with your cooler if the cooler fan and ram have space issues then You can click the bracket higher up in the notches/gutter and mount the fan a little bit higher or just keep the first ram slot clear put your rams in 2nd and 4th slots that will make considerable space between the heatsink fan and the ram...
  3. Thanks for the help!
