My BigBoy blows in .....

Seriously here I dont get it. Ive googled and google confirms my intuition, it should be exhaust. Yet it sucks not blows.

So I'm looking to confirm whether this was a factory screwup or what.

My temps are never high let alone rediculously high.
I do not overclock atm but am starting to work on my next build. So once I have the components together I intend to start overclocking my old set.

Thanks for any assistance on this one.

This is the top vent? Normally top vents are exhaust

ya hence why I was surprised to notice that smoke from a cigarette was being sucked IN.... This is what lead me to further investigate and sure enough the the concave / bend in the blades indicate the fan is blowing as an intake pointing downward. Hence why I'm curious to see if any other 1200v3 (any version for that matter) ownwers have them blowing inward.

Why even care? Not to be blunt / rude, but I would assume you want to optimize your case airflow so components get the coolest possible air, especially when under heavy load. You might find, "Ways to Better Cooling" link in my sig helpful. 1st post is index, click on topic to see it. I suggest starting with 5th one.
