i've heard of those zalman coolers being so big that they are in the way of RAM slots. if you want something smaller, than find somethign else.

Are you sure the RAM doesn't fit just under the lip of the copper sink with the 7700? You may have to put the RAM in first.

Failing that, if you're thinking of alternatives, the 7000 with the 92mm fan (instead of your 120mm) fits nicely with that mobo. It doesn't restrict access to any of the RAM slots.

Other than that, maybe you could look into getting the new 9500 from Zalman with the vertically-mounted fan and crazy 'figure of eight' heatpipes? I'm thinking of going for this option myself.
