Default wanna hear something stupid?

Not to long ago I bought an AeroCool Extreme with the copper heatsink. After installing it my temps really didn't lessen any than the stock one that came with the CPU and I was like really bummed.

So today I went and bought a higher rpm and cfm fan and realized after I installed it that it was upside down....just like the other one was!!

Well, the good news is that I am now running at about 5c cooler (36c nonload, 45c heavy load) plus now I have 2 glowee fans (8 total in the whole case).
