Default Installing Zalman 9700 CPU cooler - Please help

I got all the parts for my rig finally (pics soon).

I'm confused on the Zalman 9700 installation. There are two methods depending on motherboard Retention Guide: horizontally-oriented retention guide and vertically-oriented retention guide.

I have an EVGA 122-CK-NF68 nForce 680i SLI

which method do I use?

Depends what your case is like.

Personally, I'd fit it so its facing towards fans, to help airflow, so Horizontally.

Fitting it vertically will in most cases get the full force of the heat from the video card.
