DIMMS to fit under Hyper-212 EVO Heatsink

I have a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO on my processor that restricts memory with tall profiles. My current is a single 8GB stick in a single slot but I want to upgrade to 16 with a pair of DDR3 DIMMS to improve performance. This machine is a little older but runs solid for everything I ask of it and really needs a little more memory.


Can anyone comment on if the memory listed below which is listed as compatible for the GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD5 is low enough to fit under the Hyper-212 EVO heatsink? Seems to be about an inch or so free for a memory stick to fit under.


If not is there comparable LP or VLP memory I can use instead?


This is my scan on motherboard GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD5:




This is the memory I was considering Ballistix Tactical 16GB Kit (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1866 UDIMM:
