I'm looking for a new CPU cooler for my Fusion remote. As anyone with the case knows, the fans are on the side, and blow what would be vertically on a tower case. Since the case is a desktop case, they, again, blow out the side. I need a cooler that can blow the same way, for airflow and noise considerations. I'm not looking to have the fan blow right down on the heatsink, rather be mounted sideways.

I'm basically looking at the Prolimatech Megahalems or the Scythe Mugen-2, but I don't think either will fit. Has anyone got a suggestion on one that will?

I used a scyth ninja mini with my 65w TDP CPU in my Fusion. I didn't even use the fan. Recently upgraded the CPU and now have the fan attached. It fits like a glove and cools great!

I appreciate that Smitty. Do you still have that Ninja mini? It is literally GONE everywhere, and looks to be discontinued. Anyone else with another solution?

What will be cooling the mosfets under the existing stock fan? A horizontal flow HS will leave the mosfets cooking.

The two 120mm fans that exhaust the case already. They're maybe 4 inches from all the MOSFETs. Still looking for a sideways cooler, if anyone's got an idea.
