Your biggest fan...
Hi mr_intensity,

I think the idea is that the fan should be pointed at the tip of the extruder, such that you don't take a bunch of energy away from your hot end, but you do cool the extruded plastic more quickly.

One thing this helps with is 'bridging' - when you are trying to cover a gap, and the plastic has to go from point to point over an area where there is no support. If the filament is being cooled straight out of the hot end, it's more likely to make a straight, non-sagging bridge, with less stringy-ness.
