I'm going to buy these:

Ram: CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 15000)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


Mobo: ASUS P8Z77-V PRO LGA 1155 Intel Z77
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


CPU Cooler: ZALMAN CNPS5X Performa 92mm FSB
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


would the ram and the cooler fir together ? I'm afraid that my ram tall heatsinks will block the cooler or the ram slots will be blocked by the cooler..

P.S : i'm buying from a local store not newegg the link are just to show you and the evo 212 is not available here and the low profile version of these rams are not available too so am stuck with them

I've looked at the components but hesitated to answer. The RAMs will probably fit (with the fan pointing to the back ports and not to the RAMs), but I'm not sure if you'll be able to install the heatsink due to the board's top radiators.
On the Zalman page you can find the dimensions. If you have the board, check the dimensions. If not, buy firstly the board and after verifying, buy a heatsink. You can use a liquid cooling one (Corsair H100 or similar) and no issues with installation of RAMs, GPU a.s.o.

The Zalman might fit. Check the dimensions though.
