Take the cooler off, clean the tim, replace with some MX2, and make sure all 4 pins on the stock heatsink locate PROPERLY when you refit, as they can not quite catch and cause high temps

Other than that sell that fan on ebay and spend the funds on a decent air cool, you will be much better off in the long run matey

Have you actually cut a hole for the fan, hard to tell?

What you'll need to do to use that fan is have the front and the rear as an exhaust. The air will be forced onto the motherboard area and then sucked out by the other two fans. However, the air which is being pushed into the case needs to be able to get out fast enough, but with vented 5.25" bay covers and clean wiring then hopefully that shouldn't be a problem

I think you will certainly see a decrease in the CPU temps.

I havn't cut the big hole yet, just drilled, Good idea with the both exhaust, yep - The front is meshed and i also have PCI slot with holes so more can escape that way.

I edited them for you dude to show the pictures, havnt you posted some of them before though?

Just a tip get a file and sandpaper on the cut out to clean it up so its round. The big step round the outside will reduce airflow a far bit btw, as most of the flow comes from the outside of the blades not the inside.

Yeah, as TTL said get sanding the edges down so that the edges of the fan isn't covered by the case.
