I am putting a fan on the processor heatsink in my B&W, and I am wondering which way would be the best direction to have it blow, toward the heatsink or away from it. Does anyone have any thoughts? Thanks in advance.

Daniel

Towards it. The airflow shoul

Towards it. The airflow should go through the fingers of the sink
