had to take my side case fan off as the side panel on my antec 1200 would not go on lol dam thing, i found with this mega tho that only putting thermal paste on the cpu has given me better results, in the instuctions it says to put it on the bottom of the heatsink to, my phenom is idle at 30c which im very happy with
