Corsair H80 - proper configuration?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello everybody,

I'm in the process of building my very first build and have recently run into a new question. I bought a H80 weeks ago and installed it without any further questioning (by simply following the instructions). Now I think the way it is set-up, it pulls cool air inside. Is this the way it's meant to be, or shall I rather push air out of the case?

So far,

Whether the fan pulls air into the case or exhausts it simply depends on how the fan is mounted. Divided opinions are the norm on which application is better. I have the fans drawing air from outside of the case, as I am ready to trade off higher interior case temps for lower water temps and positive pressure in my case.
