UD9 + oversized CPU coolers + Tall ram heatspreaders is it possible?

I am looking for the highest performance CPU air cooler that I can use with the following build:

LIAN LI PC-P80
Intel Core i7-980X
GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD9
24GB G.SKILL Trident+ Turbulence II DDR3 2000 (8-9-8-24)
LG Black 10X Blu-ray Burner
2 Seagate Barracuda XT
SPARKLE COMPUTER CORP 1250W ATX12V
2 x SPARKLE SXX4651024D5-NM GeForce GTX 465 (Fermi)

I was going to use a Noctua NH-D14 but I found it that it is too big to work with my RAM. Can I use Megahalems, Venomous X, or Cogage Arrow with my system? Are there other air coolers that I should consider? How far is the distance from the "CPU HIS" to the first memory slot on the UD9 Mobo?

Thanks for any help.
