just switch them around, if the fan is blowing air to inside the case is intake and if its blowing towards the outside then its outtake the best aircooling includes having a intake in teh front and a outake in the back

You want the fan(s) in the front of your case to blow inwards and the fan(s) in the back of your case to blow the air outwards so you can feel the air just like a fan that you might use on a hot day.roulettethedog

Yeah, it's better to have the back fan blowing at the motherboard CPU. This would be better: Front: OUT Rear: IN Top: OUT Side: IN
