    Hello !

    First please excuse me for my english.

    I mounted my e3d-v6 hot-end. I have a question about the 30x30 fan.

    I followed the assembly instructions about the orientation of the fan on the blue duct.

    I am surprised by the air flow direction. The fan does not push air through the heatsink. The fan sucks through the heatsink.
    Hope I am clear... Is thtat "normal" ?

    Thanks !

    That is not normal, which is why the assembly instructions state:

    My properly mouted fan also blows part of air "backwards". I think it is caused by not enough space for air flowing through the heat sink (and behind it).
