the problem is that this case comes with a heatsink for Socket 478, whereas you have a CPU for Socket 775. There are heatsinks with side fans for Socket 775, e.g. the unit reviewed here: [URL]http://www.tweaknews.net/reviews/freezer/[URL]
However, since the case is so small and compact, this heatsink might not fit in - if you want to give it a try, measure the available space in your case, and compare to the heatsink size specifications.
Another option would be to use a regular (compact) heatsink, and keep the fan - just the fan! - from the old heatsink. You can probably just unscrew it from the Socket 478 heatsink. If you are lucky, it will hold by itself in the blue fan bay; otherwise it needs to be fixed using screws again - in the worst case you need to drill additional holes. in the case.
