Please forgive my forgetfulness. Since you're running a X58 system, a 3x2GB kit is preferable since triple channel memory is supported. If you think you'll need more RAM, 3x4GB kits are available as well.

No problem Since Ripjaws x 2133 don't come in 3x2GB or 3x4GB kits, should I just go with Ripjaws 3x4GB 1600 or something like Corsair Dominator 1600 3x2GB and take the top part of the heatsink off? Sorry for asking so many questions :\

No worries. If you can find a 3x4GB kit running at 1600MHz, that will be fantastic. Kingston HyperX has some great selections as well. HyperX RAM all use the RAM-height heatsinks so you won't have any compatibility issues with them under the D14. Since DDR3 memory doesn't get hot at all, there's nothing for you to worry about.
