Water cooling radiator question

I'm somewhat new to the water cooling business, but which way should I have my 40mm fan going on my cpu radiator?

Venting hot air OUT, or venting cool air inside?

Matt2488,
I'm having a hard time believing that any water cooler radiator would have a 40mm fan attached, did you mean 140mm? Where in the case is the radiator/fan located?

At the top left of the case, it came with a 140mm fan that's what I meant. The 140mm fan is at the top rear exhaust.

I cleaned it out recently and forgot which way the fan was venting air, out or in.

Most all fans have a fan spin direction and air flow direction arrow. You should have this set up drawing air from the case and exhausting through the radiator out the back of the case.

If you want you can also run dual fans in what we call a push/pull configuration. This is what I run on my H50 with super silent Noctua fans but I'm exhausting through a top mounted location....only difference.

Yeah I don't have screws long enough to do that, but if I could I would probably do that.

Easy purchase at any local hardware store.....I went to Ace so I didn't have to by some pre-packaged 15 pack at the Depot.
Hydro Series
Under FAQ's & Support look down the page and see the Push/Pull fan configuration.
