I am hatching my second batch right now in a gutted cooloer with bulb, reptitemp, and fan... I have seen fans mounted on the side and above. In my case, one is directly above blowing down (I mounted a computer fan in a hovabator) and in my hatcher/gutted cooler it is actually mounted from above but blowing down over the light and pie plate of water). I think as long as it circulates it doesn't matter. However, I have I had the fan in the hatcher blowing down for my first hatch and found the humidity more difficult to keep consistent. I have had far more success this time with the bulb above the pie plate with sponge and the fan blowing diagonally down over the top of bulb...

Hope this makes sense! I have 10 Buff Orptington hatch tonight so far and some more eggs pipped out of 20. It seems to be working fine.
Try to position it to where it blows across the bulb or heat source towards and across the thermostat, your numbers will stabilize better.
