Sabertooth 990FX with what RAM and cooler

Hi, I'm going to be getting a Asus Sabertooth 990FX Motherboard, and I'm still in the research stages of things. The only thing I can't figure out is what RAM and CPU cooler to get. I want 8 GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600 RAM and preferrably the Noctua NHD14 CPU Cooler, the problem is I don't think that most types (if any) of RAM will fit with the Noctua on the board. I know it will cover the first slot, But I can't seem to find any RAM with low/no heatsink on top. So, the question is if you have this board with the Noctua NHD14 and are using DDR3 1600 Dual Channel RAM, what is it.

    Corsair Vengeance LP is Low Profile memory. *should* work for you. Let us know what you think.
