i have just purchased a new cpu cooler , but the problem is that the fan part of the akasa AK-876 is resting on the memory . i had to replace my 4x1gb of corsair dominator with kinston hyperX 2x2gb , but the fan still rests on the memory of i use the slots nearest the cpu (ka790gx)

Try using the two yellow/orange slots instead.
