Case fan, CPU fan, and thermal pad questions
I use the Aspire X-Dreamer II case and I noticed that the fan on the side of the case is blowing air inside. Should the side fan be blowing air inside? Also, I think my cpu fan is blowing air into the heatsink, not away, is that supposed to happen? I didn't do any rearranging of the fan, that was exactly how it came in the retail box.
also, in the installation of the heatsink, a very minute amount of the thermal pad was wiped off by accident, will this be an issue? My cpu runs around 30-35 degrees celcius idle.
