If you look on the side of the fan, you'll see arrows that show the direction of the airflow and rotation of the blades. If you face the front of the fan (where you see the blades, not the frame the motor is mounted on) then it will pull air away from you.

Plug it in and put your hand on each side and see which side is getting blown on.
Then if you want intake you'll put the side getting blown into into the case, and for exhaust out of the case.

The side without the diagnal support is the intake:









The side with the diagnal support is the exhaust:
