    Well, it is a PFH 6030 and I was wondering if I should have it blow at the CPU or away? Plus it comes with some spacers..What are they for? BTW Lord G, I love your site...I go to it often for tips,,,keep it up!

    Thanks

    Those spacers are supposed to hold the shroud a little bit off the heatsink. And the fan should be sucking air away from the heatsink.
    Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear to be bright until you hear them speak.

    Either sucking/blowing is fun, but people have better result blowing on the heatsink.

    Alphas should suck, not blow

    My temps are a bit lower with it blowing on to my K6-3, but some guys seem to get better results the other way about. Ensure you use some Thermal paste on there as it can make a huge difference to the performance of the heatsink
