You guys are confusing everything by going off on tangents. I would think the more efficient cooling would have the fan pulling air out of the sink with new cool air following in behind it and the case fan pushing the heat out.

Surely this has strayed Off Topic!

The OP's question was
Quote:
Is my cpu fan better as intake or exhaust???????
Fred's response was:
Quote:
The CPU fan should blow away from the heatsink to pull off excess heat. This also helps draw air across the cooling fins. If you have a rear fan, then the heat that the cooler is blowing away gets exhausted from the case.
Therefore, the immediate response to the question was incorrect. But with that said, this discussion went OT and now has little significance to the OP. But I'm sure many have enjoyed posting their views on Case Cooling.

Believe me it isn't... Go back to my first post in this thread... simple example...

Moisten your palm... hold it a couple of inches from your mouth, breath in as hard as you can... Did you feel it cool your hand? ... no you didn't.

Moisten your palm... hold it a couple of inches from your mouth, breath out as gently as you can.. Did you feel it cool your hand? ... Yes you did.

It really is that simple... You want to move as much cool air through the hot spots as you can.... and suction just ain't gonna do it.

Anyway... I'm starting to go in circles. Have fun guys... I'm gonna switch to read-only from here on.

In your case the water is the heat sink, yes? If the CPU were your tongue and the heatskin was the water, on your tongue, sucking would be cooler, not blowing.

Fred, my friend... Why not just admit you made a mistake?

Really... every production heatsink/fan combination, including the ones that come with the CPU has the fan blowing air down into the heatsink fins. Believe me, it's done for very good reasons, as I've explained...

I did not make a mistake. As I stated, both means will cool a system.
