I think that they just wanted to take some pics of it and didn't pay attention to the fan orientation.

I concur with this assessment.

Bottom fan is positioned to push air up, away from the CPU and towards the top fan, the top fan then sucks the air up and away from the heatsink.. Bottom fan pulls the air from underneath and pushes it towards the heatsink, the top fan then takes that stream, and pushes it away from the unit.

It's all in one direction.. from the CPU/Chipset and outwards.

A very easy way to tell what direction a fan is blowing at is to look at the Spoons or Cups, if the spoon is facing you (the inner side), then the air is blowing towards you. If they're looking the other way and the domed part (outer side) is facing you, then the air is being sucked in.

No seriously, look again. rolleyes.gif. All case fans that I have ever owned blow air back through the side of the fan that has the frame. This is probably just a mistake on Xigmatek's side by accidentally flipping the smaller bottom fan for the pictures.

Regardless of the frame, the blade angle would indicate push-pull as it should be. It's entirely possible that top fan that doesn't make sense to you is a specialized fan that has the frame reversed. I personally never go by the frame. I always look for the flow indicator on the frame to orient my fans.

While it is possible, it is unwise to reinvent the wheel. I am almost certain it was just a mistake prior to the photo shoot, not really a big deal.

Xigmatek has a pic of the correct configuration on their website. Notice the frame is now visible.

There's an indicator on the frame?!

I've always just looked at the fan blades. It's usually pretty obvious which way they're going to be throwing air.

They are mounted in the picture to push against each other.....the top one is a little confusing but it's orientated that way.


Sorry quoted wrong post

That isn't quite looking like 'low profile' to me...

This is low profile.

Most fans have two arrows, in raised-plastic, on the frame. One points to the direction of fan spin and the other to air flow.

This pic looks like push-pull now, but the original pictures of the top, translucent fan are confusing to me. I thought it had a reversed blade relative to the fan scoop.
