Default Help with Zalman CNPS9700 Installation..

Hello, I am installing a Zalman CNPS9700, and I have it all set up in the socket, etc. The fan is too close to the heatsink and when I move it with my hands, it brushes the heatsink, and obviously wouldn't work if I turned the computer on.

Does anyone have an idea on what I should do? It doesn't look bent or anything.

The fan is attached to a metal holder attached to the base of the heatsink, pry that (yes bend it!) outward and you'll be good.
