Hi,

So I bought all my parts for my new build. I got an E8400 with a Dark Knight S1283 Heatsink/fan and an Antec 900 Case. My questions is how I should orient the heatsink? Should the Fan be blowing upwards or towards the back of the case? Thank you

If you can chose the direction to orient it, then its up to you really. I think with the Antec 900, the top fan would be more efficient at expelling the hot air than the rear 120mm fan so I would aim the hot air of the CPU cooler at the top fan to get the hot air out of your case as well as possible.
