Fan Position

937 5
I know this is a really stupid question but I have a old P2 Slot 1 type and i was going to put a fan in the case behind the proccessor.....show the fan be blowing in air or taking out hot air? My new computer which is a E Machines....has the air blowing in ward...if it is blowing out its a really weak fan

With an old computer like that I run them sucking air into the case. Those processors don't heat up as much as the newer ones so the PSU can usually handle sucking out what heat there is. Try running it both ways though and see which you like best.

well u will have to experiment and see what way moves the most amount of air over the heatsink.... one intake and one exhause is best, so the air flows in and gets pulled out, but maybe you could also cut a hole in the case so u can fix a fan blowing toward the cpu, or even fix one inside the case blowing on the cpu heatsink.... think it out as best you can as to what will move the most cold air over the heatsink
