...tell me more, please
...in a previous configuration, I had a 240mm closed loop (Thermaltake 2 Ex) that by very (space) necessity had the rad and its two 120mm fans as 'pull', but on the outside in the back of the case in free air...so tests re push / pull were somewhat inconclusive
Now I have a custom loop in a much bigger case with a XSPC 360/60 all-copper rad mounted vertically at the front of the case - currently with 6x 120mm fans in push-pull...I know that push is my preference, especially as I reversed the airflow in the case...if I understand you correctly, I can get rid off' the 3 120mm pull fans and just leave the 3 120mm 'push' fans without too much / any? hit on performance ?
I can answer that question myself by doing some tests, but it is all very tight in there, and you can save me a few hours in a system with Quad-SLI and a lot of wires and tubes and pumps and res and etc very near the rad......thanks in advance
