Hello everybody.
I recently bought a Zalman Z11 and run into a little problem.
My aftermarket fan is blocking the back fan...
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 965 B.E. @ 3.3GHz (undervolted)
Aftermarket cooler: Scythe Samuray ZZ
Motherboard: ASRock 960GM-GS3 FX
Case: Zalman Z11
Fan: Stock 120mm Zalman Z11

Next month I will upgrade my GPU to gtx 660, but before that, I want have some good airflow...
What should I do?
Should I change the aftermarket cooler? Should I buy a new motherboard? Should I mount the fan outside the case?

see this you could turn it 180 degrees over the memory stick if you have the low one and it will work

You could also remove the heatsink (with fan) and install the case fan, then re-install the heatsink.
