I've looked at a million sites for what cooler to use and I have come up with two that I'm thinking about going with but maybe one won't work with my setup or there is a better air cooling solution.

CPU-i7 920 OC'd to 3.6ghz
Mobo-Asus P6T Deluxe v.2
Memory-Corsair Dominator 3x2gb DDR3-1600
Case-Antec Three Hundred
GPU-BFG Nvidia 275 GTX OC
PSU-Corsair 620HX
HD-2xSeagate 500gb 7200.12 raid 0 1xSeagate 1tb 7200.12

Cooling Options:
Thermalright IFX-14 with 3xScythe SY1225SL12M
Prolimatech Megahelms with 2xScythe SY1225SL12M

G751 Shin-Etsu

1-Will either be too heavy for the board?
2-Case Fit?
3-Memory Fit Issue?

You shouldnt have aproblem with memory fit/ to heavy

But you will need to measure yourself if it will fit in the case.

I see that you use the core contact freezer would you recommend that over my two choices?

I will copy/paste my exact answer from that ^ thread:

Yes the megahalem is better but the CCF is alot better bang for the buck and you will only see 1-2c difference.

And there is a number of mods that you can do to the CCF that will lower the temps about 8 degrees.

What mods I'm all over the cheaper for about the same performance.

Whew... there are quite a few mods.

1. Lapp your heatsink and your cooler.(this will drop the temps alot)

2. Make a "cover" over the heatsink to direct the airflow from the fan so it goes through the heatsink and not out the sides.

3. Add i fan on the other side.

Couldn't I do the same an obtain better results on the Megahelm?
