In that case you want to look into Corsair Hydro series. H60 or H80 is a good place to start.

One thing i like about those hydro series is the ram clearence, i can get much more performance with a air cooler for about the same price or less.

I would say get the Thermalright Archon if you prefer air cooling over the Corsair water cooling kit since Archon is design for system with tall RAM sink

Look at the thermaltake archon, they're designed for ram clearance. Also, the corsair a50/70's should work as well.
