  1. 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.
  3. try and aim it downward and the fan blowing to the top.try it out with prime to see the temp difference!

    Lining it up with the case fan works better. :p
  5. but there is also fan on the PSU and heat will flow upward anyway!rghit?
