MSI Z68A-GD80 (B3/G3), the Noctua NH-D14 and RAM Slots

Hi all,

Put together the PC listed below, but I'm about to overclock as I just purchased the video card (built then waited for more money to purchase the video card), but I need to find out if the Noctua NH-D14 hangs over the memory slots. The Noctua NH-D14 does not clear my memory cards (Corsair Vengeance), according to the Noctua site. However, Noctua normally warns of memory slot issues and having to choose the correct ram when you look at their memory compatibility page below. Anyone know if the heatsink for sure does not hang over the RAM slots?
