Will this ram fit with this cooler in my new build?

There are 2 sticks for memory so it should fit. But if you plan to upgrade in the future there might be problem.

cas latency has nothing to do with size of a stick. but yeah the ram should fit.i do not think that the cooler would be as large to cover more than 2 dimms

I have the same cooler and the same RAM and the heat sinks on the sticks will interfere with the heat sink itself, therefore you would have difficulty placing heat sink facing upwards or downwards, so it have to be placed sideways.

A little thing on the plus side, I have the exact CPU and CPU cooler and I usually get around 20C-25C on all cores (idle) and 40C-50C whilst playing demanding games like Grand Theft Auto IV for example, the CPU is running at stock speeds by the way. Plenty of temperature space to overclock, I just don't feel the necessity to do so yet.
