I cant vouch for the evo, but I can vouch for the Hyper N520. There are no clearance conflicts with my RAM on that same motherboard and RAM. Only downside, if you plan to overclock the Phenom, I'm not too thrilled with the temps in Prime95 past 4.0GHZ with that cooler. I hear the evo is better. Even so, I'm pretty happy with my overclock.
