You could mount the cooler to blow upwards as long as the ram isn't too tall.

It only takes 4 screws to rotate the cooler. The other mounting hardware can stay installed.

It looks like you have standard height ram which should fit under the cooler. Are you sure it doesn't fit?

If you are really needing additional fan to be mounted on the top fan mounts, the best thermal output will be to keep the #3 empty, and put single fan on #4 as intake, but it seems like your case top vents doesn't have dust filter, so there's high risk of dusting the PC interior quickly.

 

Are you sure there's no additional front panel fan mount to have 2 fans in front, really??
