The bracket is adjustable and i know it should work as ive installed it on other extreme 4's in the past the same heat sink that is.

When i install these heat sinks i remove the fan first so i have more room to work with adjust the mount and go from there. the fan is easily removable by just pulling back the clip and pulling the fan mount off.

also if you have it blowing back it does pull some air over the memory and cools them. only really maters if your running high mhz mem with some volts under them.
