My problem is that the stock heatsink for my processor is pretty awful, and I would like to replace it, but the CPU socket is very close to the memory slots (which I hear happens a lot on Gigabyte boards.) I use 4 sticks of memory, and don't really want to go without using one of them -- as I have heard a lot of stories of people who get aftermarket coolers ending up having to lose a memory stick due to it overlapping.
So, what are some decent, inexpensive ($30 or lower,) heatsinks that I could use that wouldn't get in the way of the memory slots?

Thats a great board. You should go with cooler master. Hyper 212+ should do . it is 26$ on newegg.com . it will also not disturb your RAM setting.
