I noticed my case has a mount on the other side of the motherboard, to cover the back-side of the CPU. So i took an old fan off of a old CPU cooler, now, which way should it be blowing? Onto the backside of the motherboard, or drawing air away?
Nope, he is referring to the righthand side of the case, in effect the backside of the mobo, I have a fan there and its set to blow onto the chip, keeps the socket and board a touch cooler by 1-2'c on the core temp
@Op, blow onto the chip and if your case allows, filter the fan
