It's difficult to tell from just one picture but it looks to me like the left fan needs to come down about 5 mm. Is it perhaps running into a heatsink on your motherboard? For reference, I've included a high-res picture of a successful install (click to enlarge) below. You can use the edges on the fan's side as landmarks.

Actually it was more for myself, I am considering getting the Silver Arrow SB-E however I am concerned that it is ridiculously wide.
My motherboard is an Asus P8Z77-V.
