  1. You can have it eitehr way, if you think your case has good airflow inside it, you can get the fan to draw air from inside the case, or if the air flow is bad in your case, you can use the fan to draw air in
  2. Ok thanks but which way or where would i put those fans?
  3. this is how your config should be. exhaust at top/rear intake at front/bottom or sometimes just the bottom. push and pull config(you have) is best and can lower temps 5-10c. Taking a fan thats taking air in it becomes a push config(still good) and vice versa becomes a pull config.

    I don't know how wiht the h80i but you can just put it one way, put your hand over it and feel whether air is being sucked in or pushed out, then you can adjust it to your needs :)
  5. Ok so how do i mount the fan, like how do i know which fan pulls or pushes the air?

    the fans have a arrow which show which way air is put out. so a the should be

    basically, I'm guessing here, but, one side of the fan will pull air, and other push air out right? so you just have the get the correct side of the fan to pull or push the air, whichever config. you want and screw the side you want back in
  8. Ok thanks buddy, appreciate it :)

    welcome. yeah basically so pull air from your case/outside then push that hot air out.

    outside config.

    ---> h80i ---> ^
    l (this is arrow where the hot air should be expelled out the top)


    case config

    <--- h80i<----
    cool air is pushed from the case to the h80i then expelled into the air
