    Hi everyone, I just had a stupid quick question. Is the CPU fan supposed to be blowing at or away from the CPU? I've got a Volcano 7+ and even on the low setting I swear I feel a lot more air coming out of it than with the old intel one that came with the processor. I just want to make sure my fan wasn't installd backward or something crazy like that.

    It blows into the heatsink and even on low speed is likely to move more air than the standard HSF. My o/c'd P4 still only uses low speed as the higher speeds are unnecessary.

    That's what I thought. Well ladies and gentlemen my Volcano 7+ was officially assembled with the fan backwards. Easy fix....surprising though.
