From the research I did on the problem, it looks like the CPU cooler does block the first socket and causes some issues with fitting a RAM module in the second slot.
This problem can probably be avoided by using low profile memory (Loose the over-sized heat spreader)
Or simple mount the CPU cooler sideways, but may cause a few minor issues with optimal air flow through out your case.
You are better off buying a different CPU cooler, clearly the A70 has a major design flaw.
This is a picture that another user has run into the exact same problem and how he worked around it.http://forum.corsair.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=7907&d=1295981357
