Default Zalman 9500 Owners. Which Way does the fan go?

Which way do you have your fan towards? I found the instructions confusing...

For instance my motherboard is vertical; with the case having the power supply at the top/back. DVD Drives at the front and graphics card underneath. Which way would you recommend I point the fan towards, since it can be aimed any way? Thanks.

Is the fan blowing heat out, or does the heat come out the other way?

orient it so that the airflow from the fan is directed towards the rear exhaust fan if you have one.

Let me ask you guys this. It comes with a fan speed, do you guys run it on high, med, low. Does it get noisy?

It's a silent fan... I got rid of the hassle of messing with the fan speeds on mine and just ran the power cable straight to the mobo..
