I recommend CORSAIR Vengeance 99% of the time, quality RAM and low profile with XMP profile. And if u will get an aftermarket CPU cooler, low profile is the worry free remedy with perfect fit with any large cooler.

Vengeance Low Profile heat spreaders have a reduced height of 1.03" (26.25mm). They're designed for high-performance systems with extra-large CPU coolers, small form factor system builds, or any other space-constrained application where standard Vengeance memory might not fit.

Thanks for the info, so u would recommend the ones with reduced height for more space for an aftermarket CPU cooler?

Yes, as there is actually no need for heat spreaders at all.

The RAM runs cool, its not like DDR2 or DDR3 overclocked to 2400MHz : )
