    I know this is a silly question, but

    do accelero gtx 280 fans blow air toward the card, or pull air away from it?

    coz I got this setting:

    and I'm thinking to put this:

    at PCI slot between two cards, but this cooler will blow air toward the first card.

    If the fan pull air away then my second card is screwed (those two fans at the bottom are blowing air toward the second card)

    They blow toward the card.

    Having the exhaust on the side panel provides better temps. High static pressure intake from the front of the case for providing cool air.

    They blow air in over the heatsinks, thus the best option is to have an intake fan at the front as in the picture and two fans on the side to exhaust the hot air
