post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Is it ok to have a radiator with 2 fans, one on each side as a push/pull exhaust?

People do it all the time with the H50/H70. You'd get slightly better temps with it as an intake, but it shouldn't be a drastic difference.

In one word, Yes.

Try to match the fans for best results.

What I'm trying to do that I can't get an answer for is have a 200mm push/pull intake, and 240 rad intake, and a 120mm push/pull exhaust. Will I be getting good temps since I'm only going to be cooling the cpu and 2 gpu's?

No it's not a good ideal.This is my setup:360 RAD. W/6 fans(All same brand,speed, and 120mm)mounted in the top of my case.I had to remove the 200mm fan that came with the case for it to mount right and be efficient.That's really the only way to get good temps.

If you want your wc setup to produce good temps, its probably best to set a 120mm or 240mm (pending on space inside case) rad for you cpu and have a 360mm rad setup for your two gpu's.

If you want more of a slender low profile look the extra fans do not make much of a difference. But if you would like the performance increase with a slightly larger look go for the fans.
