Default Corsair AF120 fan airflow direction

I've just installed a AF120 in my case.

The fan has no arrows pointing for airflow so I have installed as exhaust on the top of my 780T with the sticker showing the model number and specs facing up.

Is this the correct direction for exhausting?

Get a small, light piece of paper and hold it just above the fan (when it's running) and see whether it is blown up or sucked down. Or blow some smoke over it, your choice.

Yes, that's correct. Most retail fans have the "pretty side" as intake and the specification sticker/label as the exhaust side.
