ASUS P6X58D Premium, Megahalems Rev.B, 12GB of RAM?

Hello, everyone! As the above title implies, I'm trying to do something that seems rather improbable. I wish to use a Prolimatech Megahalems Rev.B CPU heatsink in my Asus P6X68D Premium Motherboard. Pretty much every user review is positive; however, looking at their builds, almost all of them have 6GB setups, and I wish to use all 12GB of my Corsair XMS DDR3 RAM. Is there a possible orientation for the Megahalems that allows me to use all 12GB and still have some clearance, or am I just out of luck?

Another option is to install the RAM first before the heat sink, which should help with the situation since the XMS aren't tall of stickes.

Also, you can install the fan on the back side of the HSF, so it is pulling air through versus placing it on the front of the HSF, which effects your RAM locations.
