From all the reviews and tests I've seen the NH-D14 and the Silver Arrow are on par with one another as far as temps go. Some reviews have one above the other but always within 1c or less of each other.
I wouldn't worry too much about dedicated cooling on the memory, I don't think its needed to be honest and if your case has decent airflow they should have air circulating across them anyway.
