Theres two faces to a fan.

1) Open faced
2) Bars

Bars = Direction of airflow.

So the antec in the picture is pushing air the wrong way through that cooler.

so the logo should be towards the heatsink?

also is there a temperature monitor that doesnt control fans but just tells you the temps?

edit: i think i got it
do u want both fans blowing air towards the heatsink or do u want one that is pushing air at the heatsink and one that is pulling air to the exaust in your computer?
