depends on the size of your cooler. I would have preferred to have it discharge to the rear, but my TRUE was too tall (hit the top fan), so I have it pointing up. Check your cooler's dimensions against the info in the OP. I think I'm actually the one quoted with the info lol
EDIT: I went ahead and copied the info from the front page for you, theres a lot of stuff to sift thru...
CPU Cooler Specifications
With 2 Side Panel Fans Installed. 120x120x25
(146 mm.) CPU to Top Side Panel Fan Distance.
With Only the Bottom Side Fan installed
171 mm. CPU to Side Panel Distance NO Fan installed on the Top of the Side Panel
Heatsink Dimensions 120 x 120 x 158mm to 169mm is the optimum size range for this case.
Top of the case to the Bottom or Vertical dimensions of the case should not exceed 120mm. Side to side dimensions 140 mm.
Example of too big is the Cooler Master V10 (L) 236.5 x (W) 129.6 x (H) 161.3 mm
Its not the height or the width of this cooler but it is 10 mm too tall from top to bottom.
well, if this is what you're talking about, its 133mm wide, which means it can only be mounted horizontally (fan blowing out the top). I've got a TRUE, and its too tall when mounted to the fan blows out the back, the top fan gets in the way. I think the cooler needs to be under 120mm wide to be mounted vertically.
