[SATLUG] It Sucks! Or Does It Blow?

Depends on your box and the air flow, you want good circulation and should have at least two fans, one drawing in and one exhausting.

Hopefully you have a temperature monitor, in that case record your CPU & Systems temp's with it one way, then reverse it (fan) and take the two readings again.  

If there's any difference, then select the lower of the two.

FWIW: For the CPU fan I've found it more efficient to blow down on the heatsink, and use of the round IDE cables is less restrictive of air flow than the ribbon ones.
