The side where the fan mounts to the fan shroud is the side where the air comes out.

No no no, look at the fan itself, the fan is the center part, with the blades and motor, the shroud is the black casing around the fan.

See the little plastic braces that connect the shroud to the motor. By looking at the pic below, the air would be blowing right in your face.

No use your x-ray vision.

If that is the only way to look at the fan, then yeah...

When you get it running tell us what temps your getting . you can always plug it in and use a piece of paper to see how the air is blowing
