Default Cooling fan question

I have an extra cooling fan that I have on my case window that is centered above my heatsink. I want to make my fan lower so it can be ontop of my video card, so I just screwed in the top of the fan to the bottom of the holes on the window so the fan will be lower. But there will be no holes there for air to be sucked thru from the outside. Will it still operate fine cooling my card or should I put it back above my heatsink?

Well. I put my hand behind the fan and cold air was being blown out of it. Its just I would rather have the fan lower (above the video card) then above my processor because I aready got a huge heat sink fan.
