    I am about to get the following:
    Motherboard: MSI G45-Z87
    RAM: 2x 8Gb Corsair Vengeance Pro 1600mhz (red)

    The motherboard is red and black, as is the ram, as is my case. So I figured I might as well go for a cooler that is red and black too.

    My concern would be finding one that will fit and not bump in to the ram, as well as decent cooling performance.
    I've been looking at this one: http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=HS-099-TR&groupid=701&catid=2330
    but it looks huge, so not sure if it will fit.

    Any recommendations for a cooler that will fit and meet my red and black (or even red and white) requirement?

    The Megahelms is a great cooler I use em at work daily.

    You can match it with Corsair SP series Red trim fans for a true red and black colour scheme and great perf too.

    That one would be pretty expensive to then have to buy fans as well

    Go for a black and white cooler like the K2. It looks great against my red and black ROG board.

    Get a k2, then change the fans. I had a supermega, the k2 was much better. Just need some good red/black fans to match now. Preferably pwm ones.
