Hi. I recently bought two casefans for my pc build. I'm going to overclock my pc, and that's why I bought these casefans.

But I want to know which direction of the fan is better for cooling. I installed the front casefan as intake, and the back casefan as exhaust. It is good or I should change directions?

That is the normal configuration which tends to be best

Generally front and side are intake (push air into the case from outside) and Roof and Rear/Exhaust fans are outtake (take the air from inside the case and push it back outside).

This works well based on that heat rises so hot air isnt left floating about in your case.
