Cpu cooler set help

Hi i need to get a new cpu cooler a.s.a.p ,but im not sure which one to gett.

I see there are ones where the fan points down rather than at the side of the pc case.
My case needs the cooler that points to the side as there are holes case.

But i cannot find any decent ones only down pointing ones .

My cpu is lga 775 and i use a matrix mobo ..gigabyte specs below !!

Could i use the cooolers with the fan point down or up ?

My best experience was with a ocz cooler that actually blew air out the back. This continued the flow from front to back and helped airflow in general as well as keeping the cpu cool up to a 15-20% overclock.

What I had was similar to this - CORSAIR CAFA70 120mm Dual-Fan CPU Cooler

Up or down airflow will actually just interrupt the over all flow through the case, at least that's my personal experience.

The fan should be blowing downwards on to the heatsink to force cool air through it. If your case has a duct on the side panel over the HSF assembly, this will enable the fan to draw in cool fresh air from outside the case, thus helping to cool the processor more effectively.
