It must blow the cool air onto the heatsink.

Heatsinks almost always blow air onto the fins.... that's strange that your's doesn't, but I'd switch it around if you're having temp problems.

Always blow in... And that's a volcano 11 so I'm even more certain that it should be blowing in... Flip it! even if you dont have temp problems, they should drop once you get the fan blowing the right way.

It could have been 'bouncing', for example, I set my tornado facing down on top of the heatsink to blow onto the sink, and I put my hand over the fan and felt air blowing onto my hand... But it WAS blowing down, so make sure 100% that you have it correct

he means the air was coming back of the heatsink and hiting his hand yeh i checked the arrows on the side of the fan and they are the correct way now maybe some just had a bad day when building it lol
