There are some ways I see that you could clean it up, but if you're replacing anyway then its really a moot point.


Yeah, going to be getting it next week hopefully!

Hopefully ill be getting it sometime nextweek! Ill post pics of it up as well



Decent?! Corsair cases are the epitome of classically styled sexy! (IMO).
Ok ok ok, fine, its sexy! :P lol

quick, easy thing to remember. The side with the label on the fan will be the way the air will push.

if you're looking at the fan like this, the air will flow towards your face. Always.

You need to turn the heastsink 90*, and make sure the fan is blowing on the spreaders and pushing to the back of case.

Turn your HS so that the fans are facing East/West instead of North/South; Making sure your air flow is pushing the hot air towards the BACK of the case. Looks like all you have to do is turn it 90* counter-clock wise. so the black fan is facing the back.

So in other words, the fans are like this.

Ive put arrows, so i get less confuzzled, lol.

So the fans have to be pointing that way? right?

This is an older system but you get the idea. The CPU fan is blowing towards the back.

Ahhh right! I get yah now. So i need to turn the silver fan around. because that isnt blowing air into the heatsink, its sucking air out, and the black one i think is blowing air into it.

Do i need to turn them both around? Or just turn the heatsink?

Just turn the heatsink and leave the fans alone... as long as the air flow is like the picture above, your golden. From the way you describe it... the black one should be in the front. (where is it in MoM's pic)
