Im about to install this in my antec 900 case. Do I point the fan toward the memory facing the front,or to the back of the case ?

I just installed it facing the front of the case just like the instruction manual shows it. I guess i was side tracked because i read on reviews that you could face it in the wrong direction and it wont cool your pc correctly.

It won't. Aim it so the airflow goes out back through the case exhaust fan.

Lining it up with the case fan works better. :p

That is for cooling the psu, you should not feed it hot air. :na:
