Things to consider, socket of the board and processor being the main things.

Also will you be Overclocking the processor? The motherboard model so you can see which dimms will be populated, and then you need to know how much headroom you have in the chassis.

Once you have the above determined then you can logically shop for the heatsink that will serve you the best.

Besides that, nothing, except will it fit in your case and clear your memory slots.
