(noob) question about CPU fan and Chassis Fan airflow

Recommended Posts

Hello all, I am putting together a rig for the first time using the Cooler Master Masterbox 5 case. The case has 1 rear exhaust fan, and an option to have 2 120mm in the front which I am using (Sickleflow 120s). Should my Evo 212 CPU fan be facing towards my ram or towards my rear exhaust. Also should my fans in the front of the case be sucking in air or blowing out. The person who set up my computer currently has the CPU fan facing the rear exhaust fan, and the two Coolermaster Sickleflow 120s blowing out (i believe). The manufacture stickers are facing towards the outside of the case when you look through the front chassis. I am not sure if this is correct or not

Hey man ,

 

If me .. i will try all side .. and see the result . ( long time ago i hv Evo 212 and my setup is facing toward ( Blow in the air ) and use the rear fans as the blow out the air )

 

But the best way is  blow in the air and blow out .. ( Push / Pull Setup ) try check jetflo ... you wont regret using this fans ...

 

only my opinion . :)

Are the fans like this installed? (first picture)

If so, that is correct and means they are set for intake.

 

As for the CPU cooler, the fan "should" be mounted on the right side, blowing the air through the heatsink and out the case.

Like this: (second picture)
