    Hey,
    Kai and I are having a lil confrontation with CPU fans. We are wondering if the CPU fan normally blows towards the CPU or away?
    I think it's towards. He thinks it is away.
    Thanks,

    Towards.

    Ever had food that was too hot? Did you blow on it or suck air past it?
    .

    99.9% blow towards.
    I have seen a few designs that suck air out and even a couple that blow AND suck at the same time ( two fans...one on each side).

    But most HS designs blow.
    In more than one way....

    justr had a look and the angles may be a big tight, since its flexible, as you said about the other stuff about restricting airflow, i may have alook at b&q at what pipes and joints they have see if it will fit.
