Everyone lies but me ;)

I probably should listen to manu's more, and one day I'll probably melt something, but I like knowing that my fan/heatsink is cooling all it can whether I'm following directions or not.

I've tried this for the exact same heatsink. You're supposed to have the fan blow towards it. Yes, the instructions are right :D

Wow! Great new forums. . .first time I've been here.

Anyway, to the subject at hand. I had been having problems with either excessive noise or poor cooling or both with my P4/3.4 (even the Zalman HSF I tried developed an annoying screechy sound after a while), so I finally got wise and installed a Swiftech 478-V heatsink with a Silen-X 92 mm fan. The diagram clearly shows the airflow TOWARDS the heatsink.

Problem was, I was stupid and didn't see the arrow indicating airflow on the fan, and only noticed something was wrong after I hooked up the computer and noticed the air on the case fans I bought (also Silen-X) was flowing the wrong way. D'oh! Anybody who has a Kingwin case knows what a pain it is to replace the front fans, and the plastic pins were a pain to take out of the heatsink fan bracket.

To be honest, the fan flow didn't seem to make much of a difference in either case temp or CPU temp, but I like to follow directions.

As a point of interest, (altho I couldn't really tell), the stock Intel fan on my 2.8C also seems to be blowing towards the CPU, altho I had always assumed (I guess incorrectly) that it blew out, not in.
