Heat pipes touching ram heatsinks

Hi all,

I have just built a new system using a Scythe Shuriken and Corsair Dominator ram.

Unfortunately as you can see from the pics below, the heat pipes of the Shuriken are touching one of my sticks of ram.

Is this something i should worry about? I don't think its bending the ram. Temperature seems fine and PC operates great.

Additionally, would it be possible for me to change the ram slot pairing of my motherboard? Currently using slots 2 and 4 but if I could use 3+4 all problems would be solved!

Motherboard is a GA-880GMA-UDH2

Any advice would be greatly appreciated

If the temps are ok, i wouldn't worry. The ram just needs to be firmly in the slot.
