youre welcome lol.

Yes thx for that link .. It seems from this info that slow rpm fans like my noctua im going to get will be best of in pull as they are 1,500 and below .

However I think it is saying that push pull is going to give a 20 or 30% increase in cooling performance ... I have to say if IV understood that correct , that , that seems massive to me and we'll worth the extra 6 fans and another splitter cost , I mean it is around 10 to 20c difference .. That's loads ( or at least it seems like loads to me )

Have I got this right ?

Those are the temperature deltas. Do not think of them in percent if applying them to the CPU temp.

You can think of them in percent if you are applying them to the radiator delta. So if you have a 15C delta and you drop that by 4C you could expect the CPU to drop by about 4C.

4C on the radiator does not translate into 20C on the CPU.

But anyways now that you have some data you can make the decision for yourself.

One thing to keep in mind is that your Delta is already going to be low because you have def grabbed more radiator than you need. So I doubt you will have a delta of over 10C which means you might get a 1-2C difference between pull and push/pull.

Also if you are going to pull make sure that the area around the fan where it contacts the radiator is sealed otherwise it can pull air through those cracks.

A quick question please .

Which size of tubing is best 1/2" or 7/16" ?

I was thinking bigger was better

Bigger = less restriction but it is negligible. I think a 90 has more restriction than the difference between 4ft of 3/8 and 1/2. 7/16 is a little bigger than 3/8 BUT the fittings are less popular and will have less resale value if that matters to you.

I use 7/16 tubing on one of my rigs... and the 3/8 and 7/16 fittings look to similar.

here is what is a probaly a very noob qustion

... but please can some body advice me where or what to look for , to plug in a "sata" powered pwm 8 way pwm splitter as i can not seem to buy the molex type any where in the uk or any where in the usa that will ship to the uk for a reasonable price

and is a sata powered cable on a 8 way pwm cable going to still be ok for powering my 7 fans and 1 pump that i will have running of this 1 cable ?

i have had it confirmed that the molex type would do it ... but i never asked about the sata type ?
my power supply is a corshair ax1200i

The sata power connectors are the ones that plug into your hard drives. PCs are having less and less molex plus molex pins can be a pain. So the sata one is fine.
