Case fan on gpu, which way should it face?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My case fan on my gpu died so I have a case fan strapped ontop of it. My temps are pretty high right now 100c.

Should I be blowing air into the heatsink or pulling away from the heatsink of the gpu?

100C while you have the fan on it? If so it won't matter what orientation you chose as soon as you load something on it you'll burn your chip or degrade it quite quickly til it stops working.
