getting ready to start buying for a build but have a question regarding compatibility.

ASUS P8Z68-V/GEN3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
Noctua NH-D14 120mm & 140mm SSO CPU Cooler
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model F3-17000CL11D-8GBXL

this will most likely be going into a nzxt swith 810, my worry is as follows; with this heatsink being such such a beast will i have problems installing
it around my RAM with 2 sticks? what about all 4 slots being occupied? i don't plan to install 4 sticks now, but will in the future. can someone please
confirm whether or not these components will play nice with each other. otherwise suggest another memory stick that isn't as tall and wouldn't cause issues.
thanks fellas

The gSkill ram should fit under the Noctua, but just to be sure you may want to look at their sniper series as they have standard height heat spreaders.

Yea i recommend a little bit bigger case, i know a noctua will fit in a mid tower but still, i prefer a full tower, since i got my trooper, and it has plenty of head room, they do make Medium full towers. that well i classified them by they arent small enough to be a mid tower but arent big enough to be full
