Contac 29 on AM3

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
hello
i just bought the Contac 29 on my 1055t but it seems that the cooler had to be installed with the fan faces down , and since it has tower design so the large heat sink blocked very large amount of air stream made by the System fan and that causes also a rise in all of the PC`s part heat
and i do not want to add extra fans(though i have 4 120mm because of their noise)..... so my questions are:
1-does the problem caused by my motherboard or all AM3 boards has the same socket direction?
2-seem stupid but since the Contac 29 is a universal cooler is there is a way to rotate the cooler?

Mount Contac 29 blowing upward
Move the rear fan to the top or add one if there isn't any already
Part heat naturally radiates upward so this'll help cooling that,and it'll at least organize your CPU cooling this way

thanx xd_1771 but what i`m asking about is the board, because frankly i saw that nobody who had a universal tower cooler installed that way (not sure if they were AM3)
so it`s all about the AM3 motherboards is what i`m asking for

The Xigmatek Dark Knight can only mount blowing upward as well. Until recently I used that.

For the very least, the Thermaltake V4 has top fans and PSU on bottom. This helps.
