I think I have installed my CPU fan wrong and I am confused about how the air flows in my case. What does a heat sync fan actually do for the CPU?
My case has a fan at the back and the fans heat sync part of the cooler (metal bit) is facing that. How does the hot air escape my case if the fan is blowing it back in? The reason I ask is because I am getting very high temps (90s) when I try to overclock. This could be because I am new to overclocking and do not know what I am doing however.
My system is not overclocked at the minute and if I play Battlefield 3 on ultra for a while I am reaching temps of around 70 is this normal ? idle is around 36
Can someone please explain how airflow in a case works? I have uploaded a picture could someone look at it and see if the system is being cooled correctly.
I tried to overclock the CPU, many times and failed..... System kept crashing and was reaching temps of 90 in a standard intel stress test. Yeah I'm pretty sure I applied it correctly watched a lot of videos and researched how to do it.
And surely the fan that is on my case as you can see in the picture is pushing the air out of the case. Its the actual CPU fan I am worried about it's facing towards the front of the case. Does this mean its blowing the air that way, where it cannot escape?
