Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO Installation

I'm hoping to finish building my new PC tomorrow. It's my first time building and I'm not sure which way to install the CPU cooler.

For reference, the computer specs are:
CPU Cooler - Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO
Motherboard - Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD3H
RAM - Corsair Vengeance LP 8GB (2 x 4GB)
Case - Cooler Master Storm Scout 2 Advanced

Sorry if this is a bad question, but I looked at all the builds on PCPartPicker which use the same CPU cooler and motherboard already and there seem to be 2 orientations of installing it. Thanks in advance for the help.
