My motherboard is a micro atx so my ram slots are very close to the cooler. Right now I have a stock cooler. But i'm planning on upgrading to a cryorig H7. If I get this cooler my ram will be a few centimeters away from it. Will my ram stick (1 stick 8gb DDR4) block all the air or will the cooler just get the air from above the ram. (It's full sized ram not low concealment)

With Cryorig H7, even when you have high-profile RAM, the CPU cooling performance won't be hindered since the RAM just doesn't cover the CPU fan enough.

Here's a good pic with H7 and Corsair Dominator Platinum high-profile RAM:
