Exclamation Zalman vf900 fan issue!

Ok just got my vf900 is its pretty cool, if the fan didnt hit the heatsink. It seems for some reason the fan was misaligned and is hitting one side of the copper cooler. Any way to fix this. I really dont want to rma it.

As it turns out, there are 3 - tiny phillips screws that hold the motor mount to the metal support bracket. I held it upside down? Fan Down, loosened the screws and then re-tightened them. NOW NO RUBBING AT ALL.
