Reversible. These fans can be easily wired and installed as a pusher or a puller depending on what your build needs.
How do I know if my fans are intake or exhaust?
There should be arrows embossed in the fan’s frame or printed on a sticker that indicates the direction of air flow and the direction that the fan blades spin. It is you who decides whether or not the fan is used as an intake fan or an exhaust fan based on which way you mount the fan onto the computer case.
Is 2 intake and 2 exhaust enough?
Depends on your fans. You can get fans that pull in more than the exhaust and still have positive pressure with 2 and 2. I have 2 intake and three exhaust due to two 280mm radiators and all my stuff stays nice and cool. Dust isn’t that big of an issue if you spray canned air occasionally.
