Default zalman heatsink

I got the zalman heatsink that goes on the radeon card. I cant remember the model number, but it is the blue one that has the heat pipes and has a heatsink on both sides of the card. my question, do you put a fan on the side that has the cpu die on it, or do you put it on the heatsink on the other side of the card where the heatpipes lead to?assuming you only had 1 fan, which side would you choose?

Try the fan on either side and chech your graphics card temperatures, maby you can try mount a fan on each side

Yeah, that would be a great idea. If you have the spare money, i suggest getting a PCI cooler, then take the fans out, and turn them around. So the fans hit your video card.

Heres a site, they generally look like that. I suggest getting a dually.
