The new RAM I want is here.
I want to get this while it is on sale (if it is when your viewing this post). My current RAM has about 2cm from my Cooler Master 912 (on a MSI 990XA GD55 motherboard) and the RAM is this here.

Will this RAM fit?

The Kingston would be the std size but the gskill has little bit of the heatsink sticking above the module.

But would the heatsinking effect the cooler that's right on top if it, like bump into the cooler so I can't effect?

Should not be a problem I have these modules under a CM 212+ it is tight for the fan but not a problem.

Do you think I'm gonna have to take out the cooler while installing?

You might have to remove the fan.
