Enermax ETS-T40-VD Air CPU Cooler

Hey Tom's Hardware Community,

I've been looking at buying a CPU cooler for my FX-8350 (which I plan to overclock) as I've read that the stock cooler is quite loud and generally not very good at keeping temperature low. Since my budget for the cooler was max £40, I decided that it would be best to stick with an air cooler.

I've explored many options, and in the end decided that the Enermax ETS-T40-VD is best. Is it?

It is apparently better than the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO.

Also, I understand that the Enermax ETS-T40-VD is quite large and so am wondering if it will be able to to fit onto an Asus Sabretooth 990fx GEN3.0 R2, on which I have 8gb of Corsair Vengeance CML8GX3M2A1600C9W RAM (2 sticks of 4gb) . Would the Enermax fit on the mobo? How many DDR3 slots would I potentially lose due to the cooler's size?
Would I encounter any problems with my choice of RAM and CPU cooler?
