I am considering building a very quiet HTPC / Server with this case. I purchased the Asus P8Z77-V Deluxe and the i5 3570K already. What is the largest / tallest (best) cpu cooler that I could use with this case. If I decide to not spend for top end air cooling, what do you recommend for a cooler fan system for under $50?

I have not purchase the system memory yet. Are there any issues regarding clearance concerns with these new coolers? Anyone want to recommend high quality 8 gig 1600 to 1866-ddr3 sticks? I will use 2 for 16 gig.

Currently, my 6 years old AMD Opteron / DFI NF4 system is housed in the Antec P150 case with the Ninja / scythe fan combo. Not sure if this will work plus there must be better systems out since. Please suggest and thanks.
