Windows 7: Hard to find a CPU cooler

Hard to find a CPU cooler

I'm finding it hard to find a cooler that will fit without blocking any RAM slots. I currently have Freezer 7 PRO Rev. 2 CPU Cooling ARCTIC which I've used for about a year. I used Corsair Vengeance RAM using all 4 slots on an Asus P8Z68-V Pro mobo.

The cooler at the moment is close to flush against the RAM. I'm looking for a new cooler because I'm upgrading.

Does anyone have any suggestions? I need a cooler that is quieter, provide good cooling and doesn't cover any slots.

My PC has an i7 3770 and I'm using a Corsair H80 liquid cooler. My cores idle around 30 degrees C.

The Corsair H80 or H100 get good reviews but the stock fans are noisy. I've replaced mine with "quiet" fans, and it is quiet, as I use the PC in my recording studio and a quiet PC is a requirement.

What fans did you pick for the Corsair? I'm deciding on an H70 or H80 maybe, or if I went air, a hyper 212 evo.
