If at all possible, it should also vent sideways, because I am currently not using any case fans. I am using an amd socket am3 processor, and the CPU has reached a max temperature of 36 degrees Celsius at 100% load with no case fans running.

I dont see why you need one? Those temps are extremely low especially with no case fans. In fact, those probably arent right.

My main reason for needing one is that my stock cooler is too loud, and I am also thinking of upgrading my dual core athlon processor to a quad core phenom

That would be a good idea, the Phenom II X4 956 is a good processor. As for the cooler if you can fit it the Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO is always a great one.

Thank you for the suggestion, but are you sure that this will work when tilted on its side? I know that heatpipes use some liquid inside them which pools at the bottom and is then evaporated by the CPU, and goes to the top and condenses, but unless this one has wicks in the pipes, it probably won't work if tilted on its side, am I right?

Almost all coolers now use the liquid wicks, the actual liquid pipes are hard to come by. As a matter of fact most coolers on the market should work sideways, if they dont they are very cheap. So to answer your question, yes it will work, as thats how almost all uses use it. Including my self once it gets here in the mail.
