How to position a Zalmans 9700NT Tags: Heatsinks Fan Overclocking Last response: February 24, 2008 6:06 PM in Overclocking Share mis33 February 23, 2008 12:03:41 PM I am considering a purchase of Zalmans 9700NT to replace the Freezer Pro 7. Hoping to improve the temperatures. I am using a P5E-WS, Q6600-GO in a P182 case. Currently, the fan of the Freezer Pro 7 is facing the back of the PC. My temperatures are 38-40C Idle and 57-60C load. With the 9700NT, how should I position the fan? Facing the front, back , top or bottom?
