    I am building a PC that includes an Intel i5 CPU and an Asus P8 Z77-V LX mobo. Due to better fitting of the connecting wires. I placed the CPU cooler/fan on the CPU with the top pointing left or to the back of the case.
    As the top of the mobo is pointing to the top of the case. The top of the CPU cooler/fan is pointed to the back of the case. Will this work without a problem? Will it damage anything to try it?

    That is actually the correct way do install an HSF since it blows the hot air towards the back of the case and through the vents.
