The 90mm is too large to fit on the HS.... I'd mount the 60mm on the side, but the PCI covers that I'm using as the 90mm support is screwed onto the fins....

What you should do is duct the 92mm fan with cardboard and tape so that you are creating a sort of shroud for the fan and focussing the air flow down onto the heatsink.

Well... I decided to just hold the 90mm in place using rubber bands and put a 60mm onto the side... here's a pic:


also, with nothing but a corded drill with no reverse switch, I managed to
enlarge the back grill (the holes to the fan grill were as big as the vent holes above it... barely let any air out)


Using the same corded reverse-switch-lacking drill, I cut a fan hole into the side (I know... horrible job):


Lastly, I added a 90mm intake onto the front:


Nothing quite says "I love you" like modding a computer you're going to give to your loved one.... (oh, and her old computer was an 800mhz duron/64mb ram/32mb vid card/20gig hdd....)
