mine blow towards the side with the plastic bars going across the side, kind of like a fan grill. best way to find out is to plug em in and fire up your machine really quick

Look at the fans. The side with the blades is the front, and brings air in from that side. The exhaust side is the side with the frame arms that keeps the motor connected to the whole frame.

look at this pic http://www.newegg.com/Product/ShowIm...75012+Case+Fan

If I was facing this fan like it is in the pic, would it be blowing towards me or away from me? I think away from me

it would blow towards you. if you looks close enough there is usually an arrow pointing where it blows on the frame, this fan might be different from the norm.

Thank you, you were right. Got all my temps around 30-35c now. I'm good with that.
