Have you considered a closed water cooling loop (no maintenance & sealed) like the Corsair H80 & H100? Will give great cooling and only the block attaches to the Motherboard, install is easy.

I am using that RAM and that cooler on my Mobo with no issues at all. I am using a AsRock Mobo and cannot answer what the clearance is with another namebrand board.
