P.S.: You haven't accidentally rotated the CPU cooler 90° from its normal orientation, have you? The fans should be blowing from the front toward the back, not from the bottom toward the top.

The concern is that you don't have to push it up so far that it hits the side of the case. You might try removing the fan, installing the DIMM fully, then re-installing the fan.
If push really came to shove, you could move the fan to the opposite side of the heatsink, in a "pull" rather than "push" configuration.
Low-profile DIMMs like these will fit just about anywhere.
