Need advice on cooling

I'm looking to get this CPU cooler to replace my airflow fan on my new build but I'm concerned about my space. I have a corsair Icue 220T RGB case and an ASUS Z390-A Prime Mobo. Case fans are blowing from the front to the back of the case, I want to mount this Cooler to the top of my case and I'll have an additional more powerful fan venting it all out the back. Can anyone advise me on this?

 

For those wondering what is wrong with my current setup, my current fan you see in the picture can only fit in one way (promise I tried every single possible orientation, either ram was in the way or something else was) and thats blowing towards the front which means it's blowing directly into my case fans blowing backwards. Also my mobo has 4 pin RGB headers and this fan only has 3 pins so it's a wire with no use to me.

what cooler is "this" 

I'm assuming you are planning on getting a 240 or 280 aio because you said top mounted. I don't know if that would fit on the top, but a 240mm or a 360mm(with only 2 fans which is what I have) would fit on the front

I'm sorry, I had to copy and edit. I'm looking at a 

Corsair Hydro Series, H100i RGB Platinum SE, 240mm Radiator, Dual LL120 RGB PWM Fans

If you look at the top you will see that the ram is to tall for a top mounted radiator and I think you have the vengence pro kit which is about the same height as the tforce delta

So should I remove my front case fans and mount cpu cooler to the front and just put an exhaust case fan out the back? My current cooler has got to go, it's way too cramped in there and is bumping against my RAM
