I'd suggest you replace the idler pully for the mechanical fan and revert to that belt routing - if you go to sustained high alternator output, you're awfully likely to start having belt slippage as a result of insufficient wrap (150-180* wrap seems to be about standard for later high-output alternators.)

(By the by - I didn't edit anything in your post, I just hit the wrong button to reply.)
