-Silverstone Heligion HE01: Only has one center mount fan. I'm not sure if the sink itself interferes with ram.
-CLC's in general perform pretty well though the fans tend to be loud. If you can afford it, consider an H100/H100i and shell out for some Gentle Typhoon AP-15 fans, or maybe some of those Noiseblocker Bionic E-loop fans (though they just look awesome. Idk how well they actually perform since fan reviews are so rare).

I own the HE01 and can vouch that it will not interfere with any ram heat sink no matter how tall. I'm using Team Xtreem LV ram with 53mm heat sink and the cooler does not hover over any of the DIMM slots.

Water: Swiftech H220. Skip the pre-filled nonsense unless you get it at a DEEP discount. I was able to get a BNIB H70 core for $50 (regular $89.99)

I was using the EVO with 2 Cougar fans before getting my H220, both work without ram issues. Of course the 220 is much better.

yeah i got my ram at a good price is why i got them, and i think i will get the h80i not to sure yet though.

How about the Noctua NH-U14S?

Or you want AIO liquid?

As mentioned before, avoid the sealed systems. The CLC's all have low power pumps and are problematic. The Swiftech H220 is not a CLC but is AIO (All In One) and pre-filled with coolant, has a pump 3 times as powerfuls as CLC's and later on you can top up the coolant and/or add more radiators / waterblocks to it as needed.

If you don't want to do that than I suggest staying with a good air cooler. New Noctua U14S should clear your RAM and is one of the best.

I'm also in need of a new cooler that doesn't interfere with tall RAM modules...I've been looking at the CNPS9900MAX-B and Heligon HE01 for a while now. What matters to me most is the installation, been hearing alot of negativity on Zalman's skimping on the bracket mounting design on the CNPS9900MAX and difficulty on installation while the Heligon HE01 seems more secure looking and simpler on install. Though I want to hear OCN owners experience with these two coolers rather from places like Newegg/Amazon since reviews there are too personalized.

As for my Hyper 212 evo, the installation was quick and the easiest I've installed from an aftermarket HSF, It fits well but it actually pushes against my first RAM module by a slight 1mm and worries me on getting a replacement soon.

I have zalman and install wasnt bad at all. I did the install with the mobo removed and installed in the case.

It was much harder to install with the mobo in the case, but honestly it wasnt too bad.

I really really really like my zalman cpu cooler. It is quiet and does a great job keeping temps low on my fx 8350. I have a very mild OC at 4.33, but honestly I am not looking for faster OC.

send me a PM if you have any specific questions or need pictures.

Someone explain the entire crazy argument on why its better to use exhaust or intake for rear radiator, it boggles my mind. Why does corsair suggest in the manual to use intake for the rad with push pull vs exhause. Wouldnt you want to get rid of all that hot air in your case and not blow it back in?
