Question about Dell (6F858) Cooling Fan
The Dell Fan started to get loud and I replaced with a new one (Dell). The fan is attached to a plastic duct that comes down over the heat sink/CPU. It appears the fan does not draw in and blow down over the CPU but sucks air from around it and discharges it out the back. Is that the correct way to install that fan or did I install it backward?. I'm running a temperature of about 35C.
Thanks for your help.
That is the correct way. It is a newer design that keeps the hot air from the CPU heatsink out of the case. 35C is a good temp.
