noob question on heatsink and thermal paste

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Okay, so first off I have an arctic freezer 64 pro in my antec 900. My first question is which direction should I have the fan facing for the best airflow, assuming I fill all the optional fan slots? My second question is if I need to turn it does that mean I'll have to reapply the thermal paste? Even if I'm careful not to let any come off in the process?

Thanks for any advise.
