    Hey,

    Currently I am using Gigabyte 8500GT. It doesn`t come with a fan, so I am about to install one 70x70 fan on the heatsink. The question is: should the fan blow air towards or away from the graphics card?

    Thank`s in advance

    Fans are usually oriented so they blow air toward the heatsink to cool it
    and the hot air comes out the sides.
