    I was wondering would it be better to suck air off a heatsink or too blow air on to it???

    this has to do with the fan placement
    AMD Mobile 2400XP @ 2500Mhz 1.75Vcore = 2.5Ghz
    Abit NF7-S with SP-97 heatsink
    OCZ 2X256MB Pc3200 2-2-2-5
    Antec 400watt PSU
    120GB WD HDD
    MSI 9800XT
    Soundblaster Live 5.1
    Black Chieftec Matrix w/ 5BlueLED Case Fans
    800watt Sony/Bose Speaker System

    I think the point of the fan and heatsink is to pull the heat off the cpu, then spread it off the end of the heatsink.

    I could be wrong though

    Try both and see which gives better results.
    Usually you want the fan blowing into the heatsink though...

    I'm willing to put money on it that it should be blowing down through the fins of the heatsink, but expiriment and see for yourself.

    I would have thought that blowing onto the heatsink is better.
