The heat sink touches the aluminum case divider just above the PSU.

Why the hell would they design it like that...

Piss me off..
Eeek! I knew the CNPS9700 was big, but not THAT big!

In your situation, I would leave it the way you installed it...just make sure the case fan near it is blowing air IN and not OUT.
