Windows 7: Case Fan Air Flow

Case Fan Air Flow

I needed to change out my Side Fan tonight. The old one finally stopped. I checked trying to make it an Intake Fan. I installed the fan but it is blowing out. There is an Exhaust Fan in the back near the PSU. I now have two Exhaust Fans. Before I change it, I want to make sure the Side Fan should be an Intake Fan. == For next time, is there a way to tell which side of the new fan is the Intake and which is Exhaust just by looking? Thanks Guys.

I appreciate the reference but that was a terrible video. :) Three minutes of him spinning the fan with his finger. == I need to know if my side fan should be an Intake since my rear is an Exhaust?

I just "bit the bullet", took five minutes and turned the fan around so that I have one Intake Fan and one Exhaust Fan. Thanks,
