air cooler or water?

if you use one of the closed circuit water coolers like corsair h60 etc there are no issues with the ram clearance

i have 16gb of corsair vengeance with the corsair h80 and plenty of room round the cpu socket to fill all the ram

well i had the h100 in my case. and the it would not fit the ram so i would like to go with an air cooler this time. i was just looking around, and Noctua NH-D14 looks like it does cover the ram.

was it the radiator blocking the ram?

as cant see how else it wouldnt work

the h80 and h60 have a shorter radiator so should work if the rad was fitted towards the rear of the case

Could you post a picture of how much space there is for a heat sink?

Something like this Zalman would work http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Don't go with something like the Cooler Master Hyper 212 + as it will hit the memory heatspreader (the Vengeance memory is 2" tall and the 212+ is only 1.8" on the bottom of the first fan).

Also if you are going to run your Intel® Core™ i5-2500K at stock speed you can use the Intel stock cooler as it is fine at those temperatures.
