Will it fit?

Looking to use these components together:

Will this fan fit on this board, with this memory? From what I can work out, it looks pretty tight, and I've heard some people say it covers some memory slots.

If necessary, could anyone recommend a cpu cooler that's just as good, but doesn't use as much space?

I need good cooling as I'll be overclocking an intel 2500k.

Thanks in advance :)

I am not 100% but the fan generally faces the back of the case in a pull configuration. If this is the case, then the ram will be nowhere near the fan.

However, that ram looks to be low profile so you will not have an issue regardless.

Finally, if you can afford the extra £12 this CM Hyper 212 EVO is a better product.

In terms of spacing, yes the parts should have no problems fitting. The heatsink isn't ridiculously big and the RAM is a low-profile model.
