I am presently thinking about doing a major upgrade of my computer components in the spring of 2011. For my motherboard, I have chosen, after much consideration, an Asus Rampage III Formula. With it, I will buy a Noctua NH-D14 to cool my CPU.
I would also like to buy this set of RAM :
Question is, i don't know if it will fit because of the NH-D14, which is a beast. I already know that the included cooling fans won't fit, but I don't know about the red heatsinks on the memory module themselves...

Oh, and these will be the specs, when my upgrade will be finished, in case you need them :

Core i7 920D0 (actual CPU) or Core i7 950 (haven't decided if I will keep the one I already own or change it for the 950)
2xEVGA GTX 460 1Gb FTW External Exhaust (in SLI)
Asus GTS 450 1Gb TOP (Dedicated PhysX)
***Corsair Dominator-GT 12Gb (3x4Gb) DDR3 2000*** Hopefully, it will fit !
Creative Labs Sound Blaster X-FI Titanium FATAL1TY Champion
Corsair Professional Series Gold AX1200
Noctua NH-D14
OCZ Vertex 2 Extended Sandforce 120GB
CoolerMaster HAF X
Dell Ultrasharp U3011 30IN Widescreen LCD Monitor
Saitek Cyborg R.A.T. 9
Logitech G19 Gaming Keyboard
Logitech Z-5500 Digital 5.1 Speakers

Thank you for your help !

This comes up frequently. Yes the Corsairs will fit -

WORST CASE the tops unscrew, but the Fans are adjustable.

This was the link, close but not exact.
