Just got an cooling fan for my PC - Should it blow hot air out or cold air in??

  Skyver 10:57 16 Nov 2005

It depends where the fan is. It's usually best to have cold air drawn in low down at the front of the case, and hot air blown out higher up to the rear.

At the moment it's half way up the back drawing cold air in.

There's no space for it at the front. I take it it's better than nothing having it at the back?

You could just turn it round, so it's drawing air out. It will be more effective, and reduce the amount of dust drawn into the case.

Ok - Thanks Skyver
