Default 250D and H100i/RAM Question

Hi there! I recently assembled a mini-ITX computer in the Corsair 250D case, and the rig has been working very well. However, one thing is concerning me. I installed the water block and radiator as seen in this image: . I noticed that the tubes for the H100i are slightly pressing against the side of the RAM (Corsair Vengeance LPX), pressing against the metal heat dispersion (you can sort of see what I mean in the image). Is this dangerous and risking the decay and rupture of the water cooling unit? Thanks!

not sure about dangerous for the pipes but more for the ram, as the pipes move when water is flowing through them its going to be constantly wobbling the ram and weakening the dims + slots,

if you take the pump unit off the cpu you should be able to rotate it round so the water pipe header is located on the other side of the cpu and that will remove the problem altogether don't forget to clean off the thermal grease (paste) from both the cpu and the water block then apply some new stuff (noctura nh1 is good sicne its non conductive and if you put too much on it wont matter as much as it would do with a conductive paste)
