    its bc there is no mesh above the top fan, so they made it that way to let it out in the back :) very nice detail imo, for aircooling

    Actually it's not. The top blue fan is blowing air down to the heatsink, the green fan is blowing air into the heatsink, and the non-LED fan at back is blowing air through the heatsink where it is then sucked up by the red LED fan at top. I get idle temps of 20C and load temps of 35-40C.

    I think the green fan really adds to it.

    Seems fine from here, it's ready to do some benchmarks.
    I would just get it away from all those shoes, unless if you want your PC to smell like feet. :laugh:

    Actually, it is blowing down. The side with the frame on the fan (which is currently the bottom side of the green fan) is always the "out" side.

    If I do a test by putting my hand underneath the fan, the air is traveling up into the heatsink. I tested all of this extensively before I even put it together.

    The way the blades are shaped and the way the frame is say otherwise, unless your fan magically spins in the wrong direction.

    Not trying to be a dick or anything, just trying to help.
