Any ASRock P67 Extreme4 users with advice on CPU cooler?

Hello,

I was wondering if anyone had any experience with the ASRock P67 Extreme4, and more specifically, a CPU cooler that fits well, without blocking a RAM slot, pushing against the onboard heatsink fins that surround the chipset, or any other annoying idiosyncracies. I'd love to put a Hyper 212+ or something similar there, but I'm not sure about the clearance, and whether it will fit properly. My specs as follows, and thank you in advance for your suggestions.

CPU: Intel i5-2500k
Motherboard: ASRock P67 Extreme4 ATX
Case: Cooler Master HAF 922
GPU: Palit Sonic GTX 560Ti 1GB
RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 4GB DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
Power Supply: XIGMATEK 700W ATX12V v2.3 SLI/CrossFire Ready 80+ BRONZE Cert
Monitor: Sony Bravia 32" 1080p HDTV.

Thanks again,
Justin S.

    This doesn't exactly seem to be a ringing endorsement for the ASRock P67 Extreme4 :(
