Place it in front in push/pull, my case is very similar to yours and is fantastic that way. Welcome to the forums by the way! I've gotten some good feedback on this on Reddit, but I'd like to see what this community thinks as well. There is a video somewhere from bitwit talking about this very matter on … Honestly, push/pulll and shrouds on both fans would probably make more of a difference than push/pull alone. Their instructions have you pulling air through rad as an intake into case. But you are only talking about a 4-5°C total spread between the 2,so a slower fan in push is only going to see @2° difference from pull. I've tried push/pull on … Under 40mm thick rads push pull has no substantial gain to be had but again better all be it minuscule than push or pull only. I've always been a fan of push over pull myself. I like to push air through the radiator and out the top of the case. Hey all, running the rig in my sig and just wondered what the general consensus was on the placement of an AIO radiator? Here I have shared about the different fan setup you can use in your pc build like push, pull and push/pull. Typical users aren't going to see huge benefits, but if you are pushing high vcore and cooling CPU and GPUs that are overclocked too you will need to pull out all the trricks push/pull being one of them. Lets start with the obvious, increasing fan RPM from 800 to 1600 nets greater gains than having push-pull set to 800 RPM. Which screw size for Push/Pull in AiO? AIO Water Cooler - Pull air into case or exhaust air out of case So I'm installing AIO cooler, Corsair. It's all about case layout man. Simply because heat rises. Messages 6,645. Depends on fan speeds. Read the Guides at the EKWB site for more information. We’ve tested push, pull and push-pull configurations on 240mm variants of our XE (60mm thick, 16 FPI) and SE radiators (28mm thick, 22FPI). Between is negligible differences. Fans above 1500 are better in push. If you were to put it at the front of the case it would be great for an intake. You can use an AIO as either an Intake or an Exhaust, when at the top of the case it is more often an exhaust. I’m looking to get a Fractal S28 and want to replace the fans with some Noctuas in Push/Pull and having a hard time understanding what screws I would need to mount the other fans. Generally low rpm fans (@1200 or less) are more affective in pull. TLDR: Is it worth it to do push/pull on an AIO rad when not using high static pressure fans and the rad is the only case intake? Right now, I mounted the case fans at the top and back as exhausts, but it would be great to learn more about different push-pull possibilities. the AIO fans with high static pressure (Airflow 56.3 CFM, Static Pressure 2.2 mm H2O). That would make for one very thick rad and would be rather expensive, plus you probably couldn't even mount it in most cases. They explain why push cools better. This would work fine on my case as the top of case has filter the entire length. A push/pull is less than 10% more efficient than either a Push or a Pull configuration. Currently have mine on the front with 4 x 140mm push pull configuration.
