You mean the heatsink, which is located directly on top of the CPU?

I'd say you should have the left one blowing air into the case, and the top and back fans blowing out of the case. Never have more fans intaking or you will build up too much air pressure in the case.

no, seriously i mean my powersupply has one fan blowing out + another one that actualy blows into the case from the powersupply itself. this fan is right above the cpu. (vertically speaking) (it is located on the bottom of the powersupply.

Are you sure it is blowing air into the case?!? Most power supplies that have two fans will have one internally which draws air from the case, and then another external one which will exhaust that air out of the case.

If that is the case, I would say that you have a very poorly made power supply, as pushing hot air into the case seems ridiculous and doesn't help anything at all.

so is the power supply fan the one on top that you were talking about earlier? or is this a fourth fan that was not counted before?
