Not sure what you're asking. Are you saying that your cooler is impossible to mount correctly? If so, then you have to exchange it for something else.

i can mount only as its fan facing downward....like this

Oh, I see, the cooler is mounted sideways so that the fan is not pointed at the exhaust. The only thing I can recommend is to play with the mounting some more. There must be a way to make it line up properly. Call coolermaster if necessary. That's what they're there for.

thank you for your reply..but i don't think there is any way..(searched a lot on google and youtube..all video showing cooler with LGA socket..none for AM 3 ..and with LGA socket you can mount cooler so fan faced exhaust..:sweat:  )with cooler they give different parts for different socket ..and also mentioned in Manuel the way of mounting fan for different kind of sockets...and for sockets AM3, AM3+.AM2 AM 2+.....there is only this way to mount cooler sideway so that fan facing downward...... :cry: 

please suggest me anything if you can...no improvement in my cooling.......

I have seen a video or two of cooler masters where they are rotated around like yours on AM3 sockets but I would still expect it to perform better than the stock AMD one.

Is it normal for modern power supplies to pull air in from the outside and blow it into the case? The Corsair unit you have is very popular so perhaps other readers can confirm this (or shoot an email to Corsair to ask them). Even if the airflow is reversed from the popular norm I would hope that the air coming in isn't too warm.

I would be tempted to remove the fan and heatsink and reseat it again making sure that everything lines up well and is secure, ensuring that there isn't an excess of thermal paste.

If the power supply is drawing air in and it is very warm you could also try reversing the case back fan so that it is drawing cooler air in and flipping the front case fan, not ideal but worth a shot. Something seems a little awry at any rate.

thank you for your suggestion.....actually i tried like what you said...i added a side case fan and reverse it so it can draw cooler air from outside into the case and also changed the exhaust fan to powerful one (cooler master one)...now i got 2 to 3 degree temperature drop...but still i am feeling like i had done bad investment without thinking...i never thought that with AM 3 socket this would happen........on around i only got 3 to 4 degree drop against stock cooler...i was thinking of more temp drop..

edit: i did looked twice for excess thermal paste...and done reseating hit sink twice with different amount of thermal paste with different technique...but without any effect i ended up with empty thermal paste syringe( but did manage to fit the heatsink and cooler with effective thermal paste)
