I am ordering parts for a new build in the next few days. I have settled on just about everything, but still need some help on the RAM. I am looking for 6GB DDR3 1600 CAS7

In the New Build forum I have see numerous recommendation for this ram:
G. Skill PI series

However, the heat sinks look huge. I would like to use a large CPU cooler, probably either the Noctua NH-D14 or Prolimatech Megahalems, I am worried about it clearing the ram.

This Corsair Ram looks much shorter:

Other than $10 more is there any disadvantage to the Corsair? Or, is there another option I should be looking at. My MOBO is the Gigabyte GA-x58A-UD3R if that matters as far as spacing. Thanks in advance

Buy the Corsair RAM.
I had the same issue. I overclocked and still no issues with the ram with the smaller heat sync (OCZ).
