Yeah, push/pull helps a lot with those. If you're not familiar you set up a fan on one side pushing air into the radiator and a fan on the other side pulling air away from it.

Push/pull means having fans pushing on one side pulling on the other. So 2 fans on each side of the radiator.

Push/Pull. Also if you want to, one of these can be used to control the fan speed, changing settings in the BIOS won't do anything before you ask.

Nope you want them blowing the air the same direction. one pushing into the radiator, then on the other side pulling it out. ->rad->

And I would avoid the corsair link thing, just an overpriced fan controller. Just hit the button on the cpu block to high and it will do it's own thing.

No, like this.

450

All four fans are supposed to blow the air the same way, the reason why its called push/pull is because the air gets pushed into the radiator by the first set of fans and then pulled out by the others, increasing the airflow, keeping the liquid cooler.
