Windows 7: How to mount case fans to suck in and remove air!

How to mount case fans to suck in and remove air!

Hi all
I'm having some issues lately with my system and something tells me I mounted the fans wrong last time I removed the dust.

So my question is simple: how do I mount the fans to suck in cold air and how do I mount them to remove hot air.

Right now I have 3 120 Antec TriCool fans: 1 in the back, 1 on top and 1 on front side (this should suck in cold air, the other 2 should remove it).

the fan has a label in the center(where it spins) if that is facing away from the case it sucks in air, if it is facing inwards towards the case it is removing air,

Yeah, I heard this before. The problem is it has 2 labels, 1 on the actual fan and 1 on the fan's case (sorry I just can't find the right word for this right now).
I assume you are talking about the one on the fan, the sniping part, right?

Most fans have an arrow on the side to show the direction of airflow.
