Default Mugen 5 interference on Asus Crosshair VI Hero

I've got the Asus Crosshair VI Hero mobo with a Ryzen CPU and a new Mugen 5. The cooler intrudes about 1mm or 1.5mm into the plane of the first PCIe slot. This slot is labeled PCIEX1_1.

This is with the cooler mounted in the 'normal' position on this mobo. Looking at the cooler's fan, the subject PCIe slot is to the left of the cooler.

I was able to install a Firewire adapter board in this PCIe slot but had to slip a very thin piece of plastic film in between the cooler fins and the board. Any thicker insulator would put too much sideways stress on the card. This card is of standard PCB thickness with no components mounted on its rear side.

There were no other issues mounting this cooler. Except for this interference I like the cooler very much. If I ever take the system completely apart I will try to bend the problem fins down or trim them back.

Edit: Your forum 'attachments' system is extremely restrictive especially on size. But I have attached a zipped JPG here showing the problem area on the cooler, outlined in red.

Thank you for your report.
