It is totally up to you how you want to position the cooler, it really doesn't make a difference spacing wise.
Above the finished setup - an incredible silent product that can even cope with a Core i7 4790K. Overclocking with this one is a a no-go however, as we will show you. But hey, think small form factor here as this product really is intended for setups like a HTPPC.
As you can see there is plenty of space left for the DIMM slots to be populated. This always remains tricky though as not one motherboards has these DIMM slots at the very same position and distance.
