Cooler/fan direction question

Hey guys, I had a couple of quick questions on the direction of my video card's cooler/radiator, general direction of air flow through a case, and if my cpu cooler/radiator is set up to blow hot air out of a case straight out of the box.

1) After watching a Youtube review and install video on my video card, it appears it is supposed to be installed as it is pictured below, plus it won't fit anywhere else on the case. (sorry for the absolute crap photo quality haha). I was wondering which direction air will be blowing, in or out, hot or normal temp, if it is determinable from the photo. The radiator/grill is in front of the fan in the picture.

2) Which way do you want the air to blow on your average cpu cooler/radiator, hot air out right?

As for air flow through a case, I was under the impression that air should be brought in through the front intakes, and pulled through the rear and top. So all in all, i'm looking to see if my video card fan and CPU cooler are set up the right way to accomplish this. (CPU cooler will be installed the same way its pictured on the build/advertisement page.)
