Should be installed like any other 1155 board as far as I can tell. I can't see anything that would make it any different.

Actually, I don't want to build new PC myself. I just want to compare the installation on my PC (installed by computer shop engineer) with the 'good practice'. On my PC the HSF installed PERPENDICULAR to the RAM slot. AFAIK, it should be istalled PARALLEL to the RAM Slot.

Well, it IS usually installed parallel to the RAM slots, and I don't think that the heatsink that says "OC Genie" on it would keep that from happening, but it might have, I guess.

Hmm, that's weird. Well it also depends on the airflow in your case, if the shop guy decided that this way will be better its still weird but why not. Check you temps just in case (cpu,mb,vga,hdd).

It should be either blowing air to the rear if you have an exhaust fan there or up into the bottom of a psu with a bottom fan or up into top mounted exhaust fan(s)
