Push vs Push/Pull XSPC RX Radiators

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I have 2x Xspc Rx radiators and i am wondering is there much benefit on these rads running them in push pull compared to just push.
I have a 360Rx and a 240Rx .

From what I have heard it is only a 1 - 2 C difference. I personally haven't played with the options yet.

1-2 degrees for and extra 5 fans at $20 each does not seem worth it to me

A couple of AP-15 or 14 Gentle Typhoons you won't need push/pull. If you're running a couple of 1000rpm fans, then you might need push/pull.

for my 2 rads wasnt sure to get 5 fans for push or 10 for push pull they will be running on a fan controller.

If you are feeling like saving some cash, you could pick up some Yate Loons, I know most shops sell them for around 5 - 8 bucks a pop. Just make sure you pickup the medium speed fans, don't need some crazy 3000rpm fans blasting all the time rolleyes.gif

i dont mind paying a decent dollar for the fans but if i have to double it i could be up for a couple of hundred dollars just for rad and case fans. Thats if push pull is even worth it on my set up.

Ehume found that the stock XSPC fans are pretty darn decent. Here is the review.. They actually seem like a great deal after reading his write up.
