i noticed the fan on my alpha pep66 sucks air away from the heatsink. what would be the result if i reversed the fan?
I have a PEP 66 on my BF6/slotket, and it runs cooler with the fan exhausting from the heatsink. I have 2 PEP66s on my VP6 with the shrouds turned for socket use, and they ran 2 degrees warmer. I turned the fans to blow into the heatsink and they went back down 2 degrees.

The only way to know for sure is to try on your hardware.
