CoolIT ECO Fans; Push/Pull?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hey I have the CoolIT ECO and am wondering about a push/pull config. Now I have the rad and fan mounted on the back 120mm exhaust with the fan actually mounted to the case. I have an extra NZXT 120mm LED fan that I guess I could mount to the other side of the rad?

Some assistance on a better configuration?

EDIT: I'm pretty sure the fan is exhaust since it doesn't vacuum a piece of paper.

Should this be in Air Cooling?

Seems like everything in this forum is about real water cooling. Plus this has to do with fans.

Hey mate, the push pull config usually helps temp wise. You may lose a few degrees. It's probably best if the fans are the same rpm. I'm not to sure if the different rpm will cause it not to perform as well. I tried a push pull on my coolit vantage when I was using it. It didnt make a drastic change. How ever I'f you have the extra fan you can mount it on the other side and see how you go ! If your concerned about the temps probably run prime and measure your temps with core temp or real temp and then compare them to the push pull and see how you go

It's still liquid cooling, even if it doesn't necessarily have actual water in it. If it has liquid+pump+radiator+block, then it belongs in this section, simple as that.

I've heard conflicting things about adding mismatched fans in a push/pull configuration. I would imagine you'd want the rpms to be pretty close. I say you should just try it out and see how it works. Check it at stock, push pull with new fan pushing, and then push pull with the original fan pushing.

Ok. Probably should just get another fan, either one. Thanks everyone

If your looking at changing the fans suss out anything noctua or the scythe gentle typhoons 1850rpm do an awesome job with radiators.

If you are going to run 2 different fans, use the stronger fan as push and the weaker as pull. That should keep you out of trouble
