So i'm building my first pc this january and for my cpu i'm buying the dark rock pro 4 cooler and for ram corsair vengeance rgb ddr4 model.From what I know the ram stick are 45 mm tall and the cooler can do only 42 mm.Can i move the fan of the cooler a little higher ?

UPDATE : I just read that on this motherboard my dual channel sticks are put on the 2nd and 4th dimms so the first one is clear
 
You should be able to move the fan up a few mm to clear.
as you said, you can usually use the more remote ram slots.

Another compatibility issue might be a tight fit between the cooler and a graphics card mounted in the first pcie x16 slot.

The noctua NH-D15s addresses both issues and is $80 if you have not already ordered the cooler.
