Default H100 question

Hey folks, I am considering getting an H100 but am concerned that the pipes would force me to remove a stick of 4gb ram in the process. All the photos I see are of the cooler having the pipes on the right side of the board (next to RAM) but in my p67a-ud4-b3 I may be cutting it close.. Unless this cooler is much thinner width-wise than my Xigmatek 92mm cooler. I want something that cools better being that this is on 24/7 for folding so I can bump the speed up a bit too.

Question- Can you install the cooler with the pipes facing different directions or do you think this won't be an issue on my board?

Thanks!

I think you might be able to install the plate upside down, but I'm not sure. I just bought one yesterday and have yet to open it up.

Once you do get into setting it up, if you could at least do a dry fit that would be awesome of you! Do you run a sandy bridge or ivy bridge Cpu? Or just that 870? In either case at least I would know I could rotate it.

You can mount the block any way you want. Just the little logo might be the wrong way on the block.
I don't think you'll have a problem either way.

Slightly older pic, but same cooler, board and ram... Should fit? Rad would be mounted up top and two-four better fans would be replacing the two it comes with.
