  1. They can be used for either intake or exhaust. It has more to do with where they are. Best results are usually, front, bottom, and side are intake. Rear and top fans are exhaust. Hope that helps.
  2. So a single fan works as exhaust or intaker according to my placement fins facing outward or inwards right?

    Yep. Just like that. You don't want to go overboard with the number of fans though. Too many fans can cause turbulent airflow and that actually hinders cooling.
