So I've recently finished my new rig and went from full-atx to mini-itx. The only concern I have with my build is that the fan of my Noctua NH-U12S CPU cooler does not have enough clearance from my corsair 2x16GB RAM on the motherboard. If I try to install the fan as an intake, it pushes the RAM...
I'm trying to build my first gaming PC and could do with advice in a few areas..
I should probably start with what I do currently have (not a lot):

Phanteks p500a (ordered and on its way)

I've only ever had single fan CPU coolers, not twin.
TL;DR Putting space between intake fans and their dust filters seems to substantially improve airflow and combined with them being closer to components seems to improve temperatures too.
My case is a Silverstone Primera 02 (SST-PM02B) which I love despite it receiving a largely negative review...
I have mb asus prime z370-A and cpu cooler be quiet pure rock (BK009)
When I tried to install it, I`ve got a problem: gape between element 9 and element 14(on the both side) gape photo, scheme
