The XMS3's are (as far as I know as I have had both) are exactly the same. I also am almost 100% positive that both you listed will be the same size.

They are exactly the same. Just noticed what I've highlighted. This is the speed difference of each model. I have the xms3 1600 2x4gb. Very good and stable. Wait for a good deal at microcenter and the kit can be had for 25 bucks after MIR.

The mother board i'm using is an GA-Z68AP-D3 will i have to worry about the Arctic Freezer 7 pro getting too close to the RAM or will the CPU cooler fit?

So all XMS3 RAM models are the same size? Like the xms3 cmx8gx3m4a1600c9? And which one is bigger XMS2 or XMS3?
