Depends on your case situation, but I'd take a look at he H70 if you're looking into the H50 since it performs considerably better. The NH-D14 is huge, if space is an issue then you're probably better off with a H50/70. The better performer will be the NH-D14.

Taller RAM may interfere with the NH-D14 depending on motherboard layout. With the H50/70, you have less space issues since the bulk of it sits on your case's rear exhaust.
