V8 Cooler / fan direction????

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I just got the V8 cooler (the newer 1366 version). I will be installing it on a Asus P6T6 Board / i7 920 Processor. Looking thru the manual its shown with the V8/Coolermaster logo upside down. However i have seen pictures of peoples installs with it right side up. I want to make sure the airflow is going out the back of the case.

Right now the way its come out of the box, the wires coming off the fan are closest to the back when looking at it V8 right side up.

I dont mind if the logo is upside down, i just want to make sure the airflow will be in the correct direction.

I'd really hate to go and install everything only to have the fan pointing in the wrong direction. Thanks for any help!!!!

Heres a pic to help with my question.

from right to left if you look at it top down.

So if i'm looking down on the V8 (where you can read it correctly), the fan will blow right to left??? Also i noticed that the motor is on the left side as shown, my other case fans usually suck towards the side of the fan with the motor on it. If this is the same then mounting it with the V8 right side up will have the correct air flow???

I took a pic of how i would like to install it. Is this layout correct?? Please let me know if will it blow out the back show like this. Keep getting confused :x

That looks fine.

Fyi, there are 4 hex screws on the top that you can remove to get access to the fan if you need to change it after the heatsink is installed...
