Default Fan positions

when i put a fan underneath my video card, do i want to blow air on it or blow air away from it?

Default Re: Fan positions

for changing heatsinks on video cards i have absolutly no idea as i have never done that before. but for your other question i think youd see much more effective cooling if u had those flans blowing on your videocard, rather then taking air away from it.
