Cooling fan

i have installed a new cooling fan on my power supply ( old was getting noisy) the old fan turned counter clockwise drawing air from inside my desktop and exhausting through vent on pwr supply , new fan turns clockwise drawing air in through the pwr supply went and into my desktop, should i have any concerns or should i re wire it to turn counter clockwise like original fan,
thank you

  1. Rather than re-wire the fan you cpould just turn it over and install it the other way up !! - have a look at the edge of the fan surround and it will have two arrows indicating the direction the fan spins and also the direction in which the air flows.

    yes i was thinking of that , the problem i think was new fan is a 3 wire, old was 2 hard wired in , both had black and red so i copied to old to the new , yes you are correct re directional arrows on fans , the new is diff , but will try reversing the positon,
