Hey everybody...
...as a Rookie,i have a few things to ask...what is the right side to put the cpu fan?
to blow air straight-down to the cpu or drive the air out???
I have an 6300 Core to duo and it's running between 43-48*C,is it a right temp for it or i have a problem,now or later on?
 
Don't change what way the manufacturer mounted the fan. They are supposed to blow down though.

For the 6300 if it's not overclocked that is a bit warm. Check load and idle temperatures though. Use HWmonitor and measure the temperature on idle, then use the program prime95 to load the CPU (maximum heat selection) and wait until the temperature levels out. Don't let it go above 60C though.

What HSF are you using? Stock or did you buy something else?
