Sp120 have same mount spacing as PH-F140 fans but I doubt the mount pins that fan clips hook into on fan will be long enough to work. You can probably make mount pins with pull-ties.

Trying to plan my build and thought I'd get questions out the way one by one. Thanks for any help guys!
What CPU clearance does your case have?
It's not just the cooler clearing RAM but also having enough RAM to side cover clearance for fan to fit.
I think Corsair Vengeance Pro is 44mm tall. TC14PE cooler will clear by a couple mm but to mount a fan over them you case will need 178mm CPU clearance... if you use 120mm fans you will need 158mm CPU clearance.
Vengeance LP is 32mm tall. With 140mm fan CPU clearance needs to be 166mm.
CPU clearance plus 8mm is motherboard clearance minus 2mm RAM mount equals fans plus RAM clearance.
