I've got an NZXT M59, with a side intake fan, and 2 exhaust fans, one at the back and one at the top rear. I'm not sure if the cooler's fan is an intake or exhaust. Should I orient the cooler so the fan is blowing towards the back exhaust fan?
Push air out the back of the case. I put a thin line of thermal paste on each of the copper pipes, seems to be working well. Temps are 35/37 c idle and 60/61 prime95. Just make sure the hold down bracket is oriented correctly. Its very tricky look at the included instructions. The "elbows" should be pointing out not towards each other and theres a little nook for the bracket to catch.
