I would like a Noctua NH-D14 on a ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 Can someone with experience please tell me how much space this will leave me?

1. Will I be able to fit 4 high profile ram if I dont attach the othermost fan at the ram sockets?
2. Will I be able to fit it with both fans, if the inner two ram sockets has low profile ram and the outer high profile?
3. Will my ram suffer from overheating if low profile, while using a Define R3 case?

Try your best

You need low profile RAM with a DH14. RAM does not really need heatspreaders. Especially if you stick to the 1.5v DDR3 1600 cas 9 that is best for a Sandy Bridge build. The RAM just does not get that hot.

Use Corsair low profile or any GSkill Ripjaws X or Z and it will fit.
