Cooling stock 3930K with NH-C14 (one fan)

I have a plan to build an i7 3930K (not OC) and paired it with Noctua NH-C14. However, because of the tall RAM I'm going to use (unless there's low profile 4x8GB RAM), I have to use the high clearance mode, using the top fan only.

I'm curious on how sufficient the cooler will be in taming the 3930K. Anyone use the same combo? Any thoughts?

  1. never mind with the answer. I just figured out that using NH-D14 and G.Skill Ripjaw combination solved the clearance issue. :)
