  1. the fans are blowing across the heatsink and into the top of the case?
  2. i have mounted it so that the fans are facing the graphics card and psu i have a big fan on top of case blowing air out should i change it so its facing sidewards
  3. It really should be mounted horizontally (with the fans pointing to the back of the case), not vertically. Which Noctua is it?
  4. i was wondering would it be sucking in heat from the bottom cos heat rises but my psu is facing downwards so its just my graphics card

    That's why it should be mounted horizontally.
  6. Noctua NH-D14 Dual Radiator
  7. ok thanks i will change it tommorow
  8. Yeah, that may cause PAM clearance issues, which I'm guessing is why you mounted it the way you did, but it really should be the other way.
