I have realized and read all the manuals for this but I also saw people orienting the fans with logos facing inside the case. I am attaching few photos, I wanted to make sure that the hot air is kicking out. so I was going to install like this:



Because on toms hardware review the photo was same like this:



However I see so many people placing fans this way with logos facing inside the case;


which was is correct?

also after I installed the cpu on the motherboad, I should install the liquid cooler in its place after I screw and place the motherboard into the case right?

this is first time build for me, so double checking everything after I read the manuals
thanks in advance,

The side with the plastic supports and motor is pushing air out, the side without is pulling. The second picture is pulling air through the rad from the outside of the case into the case. I would set yours up like the first picture so it exhausts out of the case (badge facing towards radiator if oriented from the bottom of the rad).
