Think of a 120mm diameter tube from front to back with the cooler inbetween. That's the best you can do actually and it's quiet easily doable with a flexible airduct. You wouldn't even need a front-intake or a fan attached to the cooler itself in that setup but only an exhaust in the back that draws the air through the duct.

It would block airflow from other devices moving around while also blocking any use for an intake fan in the front, for a storage drive caddy for example, not to mention make it awkward to get at your components and looking damn right fugly as hell.
