Swiftech h320 space issue, gpu blocked by fans

Hi, I recently found a bargain and got a Swiftech h320 for £89.99. I knew upon buying that it would fit in the front of my Corsair air 540. However, the after mounting it, I noticed that the fans would obstruct my 12 inch gpu, 290 tri-x and I could only fit both items, by removing the middle fan on the rad. Will this be ok? At the moment I'm running the rad with 2 fans, one on the top and one on the bottom and the gpu is expelling air onto the radiator?

Would I be better in returning the item and getting something smaller? Or stick with what I've got (which I would prefer considering how amazing this cooler is)

Yeah, it should be fine. It wont cool as well of course, but it should be sufficient for some decent overclocks.

The rad should work fine just depends how ocd you are about having a missing fan?
