Noctua NH-D15 or D-14 are great.

ok so I looked and I got in this (gifted) PC those stupid Ripjaw ram kits which probably have clearance profiles with those coolers. (F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL if anyone happens to have tried those with those coolers). 

 

I guess I can try removing the ram heat spreaders

Ripjaws X fits perfectly fine under the NH-D14 and NH-D15. 

I wouldn't recommend going with the NH-D14 since it's pretty outdated and there are plenty of better alternatives. The mainstream version doesn't have pwm fans, the different sized fans causes turbulent noise, and the fan clips are annoying to use.
