CPU heatsink for this mobo and ram?

Concerned about fit. Is there somewhere that this sort of thing can be looked up?

I've already bought the RAM but not motherboard. Pairing with i5 2500K.

Thanks

    I guess you are looking for an aftermarket CPU cooler and are concerned about it fitting perfectly with clearance for installing ram. Don't worry, those memory modules are not tall enough to cause problems. You can use any heatsink provided it fits in your case.

  3. Re-reading my post I can see it was poorly written, but yes, that exactly my question. And thank you.
  4. I disagree. Those heatsinks on the ram will interfere with the CPUs heatsink. When I bought my ram I made sure it had normal heatsinks, nothing to high. My Hyper 212+ fan sits right over one of them.

    A look here will show even the Noctua NH-D14 compatible with the G-Skill Ripjaws X Series memory modules.
