Default much more peltier cooler help

hey guys ive just re wired my peltier cooler (extended wires) and am unsure of which way the fan is ment to go.
is it ment to suck air through the heatsink and blow it out the top or draw air through the top and blow it through the heat sink.
so any one with a much more motor cooler could u please have a look.
thanks all

Generally for PC heatsinks the fan always blows towards the heatsink. Since this is just a modified PC product I would think it is meant to still work the same way.

It should blow down on the heatsink.

Thats WRONG the fan should be drawing the heat away from the heat sink ie blowing out the top when its installed in your car

While I don't have a MuchMore cooler I do have a peltier motor cooler I made myself and I tested the fan both blowing onto the heatsink and sucking through it, and I got lower temps with the fan blowing ONTO the heatsink.
