Default Side mount fan

My current case only has a side vent/cpu suction thing and a little grill thing, but the new case I'm going to be getting has a side fan. Should this fan be intake, blowing cold air onto the parts, or exhaust, extracing heat directly from the components? Thanks in advance

Blowing air in...

If I help you with something, you think I'm the bomb, or you just like what I said, rep me by clicking the star under my post.
