That all looks pretty good - not a whole lot I would change. Just make sure your RAM is low profile if you're going to be working with an aftermarket cooler.

This is the standard Vengeance:



This is the low profile version:



The tall heat sinks don't do anything - they're just kind of there. The low profile version won't obstruct your fans at all.

I bought the normal corsair vengeance with the coolermaster and extreme4.

It fits fine. Just have to install the ram before placing the fan on the heatsink.

Looks Good!
