OK, but my question is how do I know which way am I suppose to go? Do you want the air to BLOW INTO the heatsink or BLOW hot air AWAY from it?

Should the air from the fan be blowing INTO the heatsink or blowing away from it?

Away is the standard.

I'm pretty sure the HS/Fan on my CPU blows out, but I could be wrong. Either way man, it doesn't really matter, the fans just to keep it cool for overclocking, otherwise you really don't need it anyway.

a fan always blows into the heatsink. it is the same difference as a fan blowing air into your face or away from you.
