Hello all I am looking for a little guidance on finding an aftermarket air cooler for my i5 2500k that will clear my corsair vengeance 4x4gig ram slots in my Asus p8z77-v pro motherboard. I plan on getting into overclocking once I can find a good air cooler that will clear everything in my antec 900 case.

I also have a GeForce gtx 670 and I plan on getting a second one to run sli so I would like to make sure I have room for that.

Any guidance is appreciated as this is my first home built rig and I am by no means an expert.

Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO will fit. I suggest you put the heatsink in first (without the fan). Then attach the fan. And then put in the RAM.

I would love it if the 212 evo would fit as it seems like a great cooler for the price. What about the Noctua NH-C14? I see that you can remove the bottom fan to add additional clearance. Obviously the Noctua is quite a bit more expensive, but lets say I can finally find a ruler somewhere and the 212 evo would not fit, would the Noctua C14 provide enough cooling with the bottom fan removed?

The Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO should've fit. Why didn't it fit for you?
