I am doing a new build with Gigabyte GA-890GPA-UD3H 890GX motherboard, 1055T 125w AMD X6 CPU and 8GB Corsair Dominator 1333 CMD8GX3M4A1333C7 RAM that I already have and want an air cooler that will work with the four ram slots filled and Corsair RAM HS/FAN. I think the Zalman cnps9900led will work ok but is there anything better ? Also I will be getting the new Coolermaster HAF X 942 case that has room for any size CPU cooler.

A Thermalright MUX-120 Black should work without ram/dimm interference.
Not sure with the ram fan on though.
I have a MUX-120 on an 1156 build with all dimm slots filled with Corsair Dominator.
So at least you know all the ram will fit.
Btw the X-Silent 120mm fan is dead quiet i have two on my cooler.
Says 25 dB but they are under 21 db.,2...,2...

Thanks for the info but I already ordered the Zalman cnps9900led a few hours ago since I did not see any fan heatsink combos that looked like they would work with the Corsair Dominator dual fan/heatsink combo. I already had the same Gigabyte GA-890GPA-UD3H 890GX motherboard , 1055T 125w AMD X6 CPU combo with 8GB Corsair Dominator HS/fan in a Thermaltake Soprano RS case with stock AMD 1055T heatsink and they were touching so I know the Thermalright MUX-120 Black w/120mm fan would not work with the RAM HS/FAN.

Update: The Zalman CNPS9900LED works perfect in my Coolermaster HAF X 942 case with Corsair Dominator HSF. It gives me the same clearance to the RAM slots as the stock AMD 1055T HSF. It also keeps my 1055T much cooler than the stock HSF.
