Three of the four DIMMS are covered by the SA and the front push TY-140. If that works with my XMS3 which are the same height as your Vengeance LP you should be fine.
The Define R3 is 8.17" wide compared to my last case which was 8.43" (K62). The SA barely fit in Push/Push. You may end up using a Pull/Pull config but that's fine. Same temps within 1-2c.
Once my main DAW (Ableton Live) goes 64-bit I'll be upgrading to 16GB as well.
EDIT: Hmmm....per Fractal's site:
* Supports CPU coolers with height of ~165mm
You may not be able to use the SA in that case. Edited by solsamurai - 4/12/12 at 10:38pm
