Case Fan question...

Bit of a stupid question :D 

But when fixing in case fans - the small arrow on the fan, is this the direction of air flow? And also - is it better to have air coming in at the front, and out the back, or the other way round?

I have an akasa eclipse 62 and have 2 x 120mm fans.

Cheers

Your power supply will exhaust out the back so you will want the back fan to also go out the back. Front fan pushing in.

Cheers haywood - so the arrow on the fan will point in towards the PC on the front fan, i.e. air going inwards, and visa versa on the back?

The arrow should point the way you want the air flow. In most all case pointing toward the back of the case. Air flows in from the front and out the back. In = front, back = out or exhaust.
