Default cant get fan to work....

my case has 2 80mm fans on the bottom right side of the case.

i can only get one to work can you give me a lay out on were they should be plugged in. thanks and also i turned the fans around so they blow in instead of blow out that was a good thing right?

It should be plugged in the same as the other fan, to an availible molex connector from your PSU. I would also recommend switching your fans back around and having them exhaust all hot air from the case, intaking builds up air pressure and will not effectively cool your case.

Plus blowing in gets all the dus builup inside your PC and when that happens, It collects on the processor and causes more heat
