Just got my new A-Top AT901 full tower case today. http://www.pccase.com/image/lg_AT901.jpg

And I have a question about the fan on the side of the case. Wouldn't it be more effective, to make it blow air in and deliver cold air to the HSF? Because right now it's blowing air out. It doesn't seem very efficient to me to have my HSF and side fan blowing different directions.
It all depends on a bunch of stuff. So why dont u just try it blowing in, check the temp reading, and then try it blowing out, and check the temp readings, then set it to whatever is best.
