I recently built a new rig and I done goofed.

The issue is that the Corsair - H100i has these nice 120mm ML PRO Series RGB fans that come with it, which is all groovy except the part where when I pop the radiator on the top of the case (Corsair - Crystal 570X), add the mother board (MSI - B450I GAMING PLUS) then pop in the RAM (Corsair - Vengeance) the second fan towards the front of the case on the radiator fits flawlessly while the first location on the radiator is too close to the RAM and thus I can't fit the 120mm ML PRO Series fan on it.
At the moment I am running this set up with just one fan on that radiator which seems to work OK, idle temps are around 33C while gaming is somewhere between 40 and 50, but I guesstimate that running only one fan on a cooling system designed to utilize two isnt a good idea.
So, fellow techies, which solutions do you propose I attempt at this silly dilemma that I have created and am now faced with? Whiles I would love to utilize the 120mm ML PRO Series fan on above mentioned radiator, I don't this will be possible unless I either find RAM with shorter height clearance or a different motherboard that has its RAM slots located further away from the edge of the board. Is there some sort of a (preferrably RGB and Corsair - H100i compatible) fan that I can fit on top of that radiator which will allow me to clear the RAM?
 

Here is a picture of the mobo with RAM in it and then inside the case, although it is hard to see where the top radiator spot is without a fan:

Huge case, tiny board, I'll never understand that

ML120 Pro is already 25mm, so to go thinner there's only 15mm fans... None of them RGB that's for sure, and look significantly different to your current fan. Why not mount the radiator in the front?
