NZXT h440, GA-Z170X-Gaming7, and Corsair h115i WON'T FIT

Extremely frustrated, I have been working on a brand new build for over 8 hours now and I'm to literally my final step of installing the Corsair h115i onto the top of my case.. I have tried everything and it WON'T FIT. The "ATX_12V_2X4 its like right in the way, by millimeters. I am losing my mind right now and extremely lost on what else my options are. I even removed the 140mm case fan on the back of the h440 and still... its just a few mm in the way. I am completely lost right now and was wondering if anyone else has this setup and what you did.

EDIT: Looks like my only option at this point is to front mount the rad but Idk if I should orient the fans on the radiator as an exhaust or intake, it almost seems futile at this point since the front of this case offers like no ventilation options.

Try what Peter said, but front mounting the radiator isn't bad at all. The H440 has good ventilation.

I don't have the 115, I have the 110i GT which I front mounted in my H440. So you're saying the the upper ATX power cable is blocked by the rad? It seemed to me that I need to do a pull config instead of push if the rad is top mounted... did you try that? The top of the case seemed slightly contoured and the fans would recess into contour whereas the rad would not. Perhaps that will give you the additional clearance.
