    Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro - Mounting Advice Needed

    Am putting together my new rig, and have installed the motherboard into the case with the CPU and memory fitted.

    I'm just wondering which way round I should put the Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro on the mobo, with the fan facing the front of the case or the rear? Says in the instructions that in most cases the fan should face the rear of the case, but mounting it that way in the Akasa Zen means it's only a few cm away from the case's exhaust fan. Is this a problem or is this ideal?

    Thanks.

    I think that is the idea.

    Draw air across the CPU cooling fins, and then straight out the case (with a little drafty love to the cpu regulator 'fets).

    Yeah that's what I was thinking, I had just wondered if you needed a bit more than a 3 cm gap between the two fans. Well if it's not a prob i'll install it so the fan faces rearwards. Thanks.
