I actually used to use that same heatsink. Been running at about a max of 40-42°C while folding, so I didn't want to push my luck if it's risky. I really need to upgrade the fans in my HAF 932 and get a fan controller. Kind of want to stick with air cooling since I have no idea how to water cool other than what I've read. Feel safer with no water around my system
Edit: I also feel like my heat sink fans never cooperate when trying to set up push pull. Feels like some air is coming out the front and back, but I could just be an artard.
