Cooler for my 3770k

I need a cooler for my 3770k but I've ran into a problem...

I have

Fractal Design Core 1000 Series Micro ATX Case
Asus P8Z77-M Pro (M-atx)
Vengeance DDR3 4 x 4 GB (16GB)

From what I've been told almost all good coolers wont fit because of the ram getting in the way and the case being so small, can anyone send me any which definetly will?

Im hoping to overclock from 3.5ghz to around 4.1/4.4

Thankyou (:

Seb

  5. I'd seen that cooler with tall ram, but in the website it says it's not compatible :

    I guess i was wrong.

    sorry to keep asking questions, would this also fit and how do you think it compares to the noctua? http://www.amazon.co.uk/Zalman-CNPS8900-Heatsink-Performance-Technology/dp/B0072IQHCI/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top

    Im very new to all of this

    I might just end up replacing the ram, do you know of any decent coolers which will fit?

    I'm going to stay away from the water coolers due to budget and that I dont trust myself aha, I've decided to replace the heat sinks on two of the 4GB vengeances and tehn it should fit (http://img.techpowerup.org/120210/Zalman_CNPS8900_Extreme_RAM_1.jpg) with the cooler http://www.amazon.co.uk/Zalman-CNPS8900-Heatsink-Performance-Technology/dp/B0072IQHCI/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top
  9. Yes, you can take the heatsink out, it was just an option if you wanted the four of them, the water coolers gives clearance even for the dominators.
  10. Thankyou for your help :D
