you should run that cooler the other direction turn it 90*

with that cooler you can slide the cooler-fan up or down by just un-clipping it and moving it. very easy solution.

also i recommend a 2nd cooler with the supplied mounting brackets if you have a 120mm kicking around or in a old unused case.

if your adamant about running it pointing up you can always bend a few fins to make some clearance.
