I can't rotate the heatsink. Tried it earlier and the top fan would grind against my aluminum fins driving my crazy

All depends on the mobo. The cpu socket looks pretty close to the edge on that biostar board.

I'd be awfully careful using tape like that.
If a piece came loose and ended up stuck in your HSF or GPU or PSU it could cause some real problems.
Zip-ties are cheap... most hardware stores carry them.
Better to be safe than on fire!

And tape leaves sticky residue all over your case and cables which dust then sticks too.

Thats where it would hit, if i placed the hsf the "normal" way.
I just edited the pic in paint hehe



The tape landing on the back of my gfx card would be a scary thought lol. But I don't believe their is any tape place directly above the gfx card so... hopefully it'll be ok
Shate... there is some tape above the psu though... maybe I'll get some tough rubber tape :D


I think the my biggest problem is that the gfx card is blocking all the air from my front fans and keeping it from reaching the hsf. Also, the back fan looks to be robbing air from the hsf (see original picture). When I tried reversing the back fan so it would shoot air into the case my temps lowered by 1-2 c. But I have no filter for the back and I didn't want more dust getting in, so I put it back to normal.
