To determine which side of the EK fan is meant for intake and which is for exhaust, it's essential to consider the fan's design, particularly the spindle braces that secure the fan motor at the center:
- Intake [Pull]: The intake side of the fan is identified by the presence of the EK brand logo, which is often of a distinctive size. This side is designed to draw in cool air into your system to effectively cool your components. The spindle braces that secure the fan motor are usually hidden on this side.
- Exhaust [Push]: On the opposite side, the exhaust side, you'll find the specification sticker. This side is responsible for pushing hot air out of your system. The spindle braces that secure the fan motor are typically visible on the exhaust side.
Recognizing these features ensures that you correctly orient your EK fan for optimal cooling and system efficiency.
