Take the heatspreaders off your memory. Unless you have some serious memory overclocks they will be fine without spreaders.

Pictures would help us see what you mean, I'm not sure how you have the fan currently. I think taking the heatspreaders off the memory and placing the fans as intended by the designer would offer you better performance. I mean you spent almost $100 on a heatsink that is one of the best, but being the best you have to set it up a certain way.

But if you are happy then that is all that matters.

Have you tried lifting the fan up on the fan clips a bit?

Or otherwise repositioning it on the Silver Arrow?

X[]_X[] Something like that?

The way you have it is fine. However, you can still put the fan on the memory side. You would need to raise the fan a litte to clear the memory.

Lastly, you can also rotate the heatsink 90 degrees.

What you have is fine, but optimal cooling would be pushing air through as well as pulling. You could rig a fan over the memory as well.

AMD sockets can't rotate like Intel sockets.
