Not bad. I had a bit of the same problem with my tall RAM. I'm using 4 sticks of Corsair Dominator Platinum 32Gb and I had to remove 3 of the metal fins on the right side of the right tower in order for this CPU cooler to fit. I did the same thing you did with the two 140mm fans, but I wanted 3rd fan for better cooling on the right tower. I installed a 120mm fan there and even though I could not center it like the other two due to my RAM on that side, I like that it sticks out towards my window evenly with the other two.

The only other thing I did to my fans was take a black sharpie to the Phanteks lettering on the fans to make them stand out more through my window.

Here's a couple pics for reference:
