I msg'd noctua they said their D14 is compatible with the memory and i shouldn't have a problem, but I wan't the silver arrow for better acoustics. Fans are huge tho.

It's crucial I can utilized all my ram slots, thanks!

Initially I linked the wrong kit. The modules were very small, but they weren't 4GB. The 4GB modules that I linked are not as small. I would get the low-voltage modules and a cooler that doesn't conflict with them.
