You face it so that the fan is blowing towards your case exhaust fan. So that would make it Picture 3.

FAn hsould be pointing to the rear of the mobo (toward the case faceplate). That wuld be the far right picture. BTW...I have two of those installed and that is the way I have installed them without a problem.

According to the artic freezer 7 manual this is backwards, this will blow the air to front of the case messing up the air flow (air flow should be front to back). You want it to blow towards your exhaust fan to get the hot air out of your case. I'm looking at the installation diagram now (i just put one of these is last week). It would be picture 3 from the left.

It looks like you have the same mobo/ram/hsf as my setup. I installed it this way:

ImageShack - Hosting :: img0190sh5.jpg

This makes it so the fan on the hsf is blowing the hot air into the exhaust in the rear.
