People here tend to recommend OCZ Freeze, IC Diamond 7(or something), and MX-2. I'd recommend OCZ freeze.

No real instructions for putting it on. Just be sure to check out the instructions a little then have someone hold the thing in place or screw in the backplate for you.

so will it go in without having to move the top exhaust fan? will it obstruct the memory slots?

i bought two of the red led R4 fans for the side panel. since i'm not going to be using one of them would the R4 fan be better to use on the mugen instead of the one it comes with?

It fits fine with the top fan, It won't obstruct the memory slots until the fan is on the heatsink. You can still use every memory slot, you just need normal sized memory. Also gotta put it in before the mugen 2. If you have large ram, you'll need to put them in the 3rd and 4th slots.

Yes, the R4 will be better. I currently use one on mine with the fan that it came with as my pull fan.

Yes, it has a 3 pin plug.

Also, I have some pics in this thread but they're a bit dated. My setup has changed. I'll take pics within the next few days. I still need to sleeve my side panel fan.

No way.....the cable management is a dream. If my 24-pin mobo power was about an inch longer I could run it through that one hole(yes, I can make it fit) and plug in but I cut a hole already so I don't need to.
