Hyper 212+ in Pull Only Confi

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Has anyone tried using the Hyper 212+ in a pull only configuration? I currently have it in a push/pull, but the push fan overlaps one of my RAM slots and I want to upgrade my RAM. I'm just wondering if anyone has tried this and what kind of temp change you had? Thanks for the help!!

Isn't that the way it should be? lol

I've always had mine that way. I also tried push and it raised the temps a little.

Having mine in push/pull made temps drop only 2-3C think it was.

When I had one, I went push, now I have two in push pull. If you want taller RAM just nudge the fan up a bit...most of it will still blow on the CPU heat sink, itll just stick up a little ath the top.

I have it in a push/pull right now, before that I had it in a push config (pushed air through the heat sink), but I haven't tried it in a pull config, so I was wondering how that affected the temps. Thanks for the input! Rep+

I can't push the fan up at all, as it is now, the top of the cooler touches the side of my case, so clearance is an issue. I was thinking of just removing the push fan all together but I don't want my temps to jump through the roof.

You could try putting it in pull configuration, and seal the gaps around the fan and the "radiator". Like with tape or something.

Also, RAM with heatsinks are just a luxury. I have the Corsair Vengeance kit and the "heatsink" itself is sustained into the memory modules with normal adhesive tape. I don't think that helps with temps a lot.

What I did was take off one of the module's heatsink and put it in the first memory slot (the cpu cooler's fans cover this area) and the second module in the third slot was left with the heatsink since it does not coincide with the fans. I did that to make it a little more aesthetically pelasing, since the module in the first slot cannot be seen anyway.

just raise your front fan a little, it doesn't have to be flush with the heat sink

If you already got the cooler and the fans, your best bet is to try it yourself. one thing I would try in a push configuration is to block off the sides of the fins not in the airflow direction to ensure that maximal airflow traverses the length of the fins. For a temporary solution, some cardboard from a cereal box/tissue box will work to block off the fins.

didnt you find pull to be slightly better than push?

anyhoo it should be very close in performance

or mount the fan a little high on the heatsink to clear your ram, will make very little difference too
