I am about to install a Arctic freezer 7 pro rev.2.
6 gig ddr3 ram corsair xms 3
intel core 2quad CPU q9550 2.83 ghz
Gigabyte mb ga-ep45t-ds3r motherboard
Gigabyte Radeon HD 4850 1GB Passive cooler
All in a sidewinder case
My question is which is the best way to install this ?
The manual says towards the ram ,there web says towards the rear .
Judging by the pics online ,first slot of ram is an issue .
I have a rear fan sucking the heat out ,and to side fans sucking in .
And intend to install a front fan in the next week or so .
Have looked at a lot of pics online ,all saying there way is the best .
Even looked at a utube video saying towards the back .
What do you all recommend ?
Also what is the best thing to clean you cpu before installing my new cooler ?
Thanks and cheers to all !
