The easiest way to check, is to plug them in. But from the way mine are possitioned, if the sticker and the wires are facing the outside of the case, its exaust. If there facing the inside, its intake.

Put your hand up to it and see which way it is blowing. Towards the inside of the case is intake and outwards it outtake.

most of mine have two arrows somewhere along the outside edge. one shows the direction of rotation, the other points in the direction air flows.
