Not sure on that specific board, but I'm running a CM hyper 212 on an ATX board and my fan sits almost touching the high profile RAM, but comes up just short. You should be fine, but you can always put the fan on the other side or just slide it up the heatsink to clear the RAM if need me. Can also try mounting it sideways on the CPU

Sounds good. Can I move my RAM to slots 2 and 4 instead of 1 and 3? I don't really understand the significance of ram slots.

if you're using 2 sticks you need to alternate slots, but yes 2 and 4 can be used in place of 1 and 3 to give more clearance.
