Corsair Vengeance Pro is 44mm tall and Cryorig R1 Ultimate has adjustable RAM clearance of 30mm to 35mm. You can use Cryorig R1 Ultimate if you remove the front fan completely and only use the middle fan. Oh, you also need 170mm of CPU clearance inside your case if you want to use Cryorig.

You got 3 choices here:
1. Use R1 Ultimate without front fan to get enough RAM clearance.
2. Switch out your RAM to normal profile (e.g Corsair Vengeance which is 33.5mm tall).
3. Use CPU cooler that doesn't have RAM clearance issues (e.g Arctic Freezer i32 in push-pull).

In my Skylake build (full specs with pics in my sig), i have Freezer i32 in push-pull and it cools my i5-6600K very well. Freezer i32 is also one of the best mid-sized CPU air cooler,
