Default Intake or Exhaust

Lets just say...

I am on a desert island, I have a computer that has the stock HSF. I also have 1 x 80mm fan that I can install. There are no stores so I can not buy another...

Should I install the fan as an Intake or an Exhaust?

Thanks for your time.

if your on a desert island. it won't matter which way you put it... unless the island has a power generator it won't work anyway.. so you might as well use it as a boat anchor when you make the raft out of wood from the only tree there to get off of it.

lol, where's the part of the post where you say "but if there was a power generator....."

Because I was wondering the same thing also

I had my old Thermaltake heatsink run a Exhaust and it gave me higher temperatures than intake.
