Default Fan Question

Hey,

My fan is blowing towards the CPU, if I flip the fan over, will it cool better? So the heat is going outwards.

If it's the cpu fan leave it alone!!! The cpu fan's are designed to blow cool air on to it.

The only time you want a fan pulling air is with water cooling and having a radiator. Then it's better to have a shroud and the fan pulling air through the radiator. But we're talking a heatsink here that isn't sealed like a shroud and radiator so you have to have air blowing onto the thing

Your CPU will fry if you dont keep it blowing right on it.

Well, my desktop is right by the heater, and hot air keeps entering in, should I buy a case fan?[I have no case fan].
