1-1/4" would be under the assumption of a case or fan grill along with the fan. If it's just the fan only, it'll likely hit the rad.

However, it depends on how the rad is constructed, just keep an eye on things while you're screwing in the fan. For example, one side of my HWLabs SR-1 has about 1cm between the outer mounting holes and the actual radiator surface.
