Default Which way do I install the case fan?

I have a feeling I installed the case fan upside down but I'm not quite sure. Which way are the fans wings or fins supposed to be curved?

Default Re: Which way do I install the case fan?

See which way the air is pushed out of the fan. If the fan is in the front of the case, you want that side to be facing towards the components. If the fan is in the rear or side, you want the air being pulled away from the components.
