Anyone of the Big 3 air cooler: Silver Arrow, Noctua NH-D14 and the Phantek PH-TC14PE should be plenty to cool you 3770K.

If you are obsessed with tall Ram and despise low profile Ram then your option would be liquid coolers like H80/H100.

Mobo will fit just fine, Extreme 4 is the same length as standard ATX which you case supports, it is actually a little shorter on the far side so you have to support it when plugin in the 24Pin ATX power and Ram so it won't bend(called "flex"), or just attach them onto of the mobo box and then bolt the mobo onto the stands inside the case.

You want to double check the HSF clearance for your case and the height of the Cooler you are getting, Hyper 212 for example is 159mm high, so your case's HSF clearance have to be larger than that. Also, get Low Profile Ram(Corsair Vegenance Low Profile is the best(26.25mm tall), but you can get G.Skill Ares(32mm) too.

Nothing about your case, I was talking about Z77 Extreme 4, it(12"X8.6") is shorter than a (12"X9.6") standard ATX board on the horizontal side(width) but is cheaper while offering the same amount of features. Which means you won't be able to support it on the far side(i.e your 24 Pin ATX power connector & your Ram Slots) with the standard bolt &rubber stand.

For the details here:

After reading several pages worth of user feedback and looking at the measurements, it does appear as though the board is slightly narrower than standard ATX. I had a Gigabyte board that was the exact same thing and the only issue it really presented was that it allowed for some more flex on the end where the 24 pin power connector is.

As long as you support the board while plugging in the power connector, you won't have any issues. said:

Just read the whole link, it is only a issue if you are not careful during installation, once that's done you are golden. You can always just install the ATX connector and the Ram on your Mobo's package box then bolt the whole thing in which will make the "flex" a non issue for the remainder of your lifetime. This is a issue for most if not all of the <$160 division ATX motherboards yet you don't seen tons of posts about it.

Actually if you serach "flex" on this forum you will find all the post was made by me.

Worst comes to Worst, Spend another $50 for a Full Size ATX with exactly the same features just so you don't have to worry about it.

If that is really bothering you(which it shouldn't since I am doing my first build with the same board), spend the extra cash for another Z77 board(and no you don't have to switch anything as long as you are still using a Z77 board) and make sure it is full size(12"X9.6") if you are into it.

You can easily mitigate this issue by putting a few fingers underneath the board while pulling in Ram and the 24 pin ATX connector, but if you rather spend an extra $50 than using your finger for 10 seconds feel free to do so, it is not my money. It is not a issue for the thousands of ASRock Extreme 4 users world wide, if you think it is a issue for you either be careful or spend more than you need to.

And a ton more work/$$ to build/install(need a lot of planning/modding to fit those 240 mm thick rads and push/pull gentle typhoons), only for the hardcore Rigtweaker/OCers. I do agree H80/H100 mostly ties with top end air like PH-TC14PE or NH-D14 and is no match for custom loop, only suggested in case the OP really want tall Ram and want pre-built solutions.
