I currently have a dual 140mm radiator (60mm thick standing vertical), and I have two NZXT Air Flow Series RF-FZ140-O1 on one side pushing and two COOLER MASTER R4-L4S-10AB-GP pulling on the other. I also have a dual 120mm rad with low-rpm fans.
Most of the time I just have the blue ones two cooler master fans off as I don't like them on at full rpm and I don't have a fan controller. Is this inhibiting airflow and bringing up my temps?

You should know best, do your temperatures go up when they are off? If not, then you're good, if so (significantly) then i think you have your answer the other way smile.gif I don't personally see it being an issue as push / pull setups generally only have 2 - 3c difference at most from what i've seen / experienced. Of course just my 2 cents as always smile.gif

I would say very little. A couple of degrees maybe. I would just stick to a pul or a push. 60 mm is a thick rad and probably doesnt have too dense of fin placement ( I would guess ) I would just put on some nice low rpm fans in a push or a pull.

I didn't see any sizable (what I wanted) gain from running push/pull, granted I'm still using mine in Push/pull. If you don't like the noise from the fans I'd just let them off. Those extra 3 degrees aren't worth it.

Use them in pull, very little performance difference from push&pull and you can clean it much easier (don't have to take off the fan) when it's in pull.

Thanks for the feedback, I think I'll leave them there until I redo my loop in a few months, then I might replace them with some more of those nice NZXT fans!
