TRY BOTH WAYS

It is not very hard at all to change the direction that the fan blows so why not give it a try and tell us.

But i would put money on blowing rather than sucking as that is how almost all fans are... but still, it cant hurt to try

The Alpha's are designed to pull air away from the cpu. You will get better results sucking. Try both ways and let us know.

How much? I'm betting he will get better results with the fan set to suck air away from the heatsink.
