Would this setup count as a push/pull setup?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
So, my friend has this weird setup for his 240 rad, where ↑ represents where a fan is, with the arrow showing the direction of the airflow. Now I'm telling him it isn't a push/pull setup but he says it is (which I find totally misleading).

I find this post ridiculous but just wanted to end this with feedback from the pros.

So there are only fans on one half of the radiator? 

If the fans are on the whole radiator, then yes, that's push pull. One pushes air through, the other sucks it through.

No, spaces weren't showing, so I replaced it with invisichars. Look at it again and sorry about that.

the way i see that is he has 2 fans 1 push and 1 pull but they're offset, and while 1 is pushing and 1 is pulling no in that case it isn't a push/pull setup you would need 4 fans for a push / pull on a 240 rad

That's been my point this whole time.

^^ Agreed, or even if he put them both on 1 side that would be push/pull, it wouldnt be as good as if he spread them out, but it technically would be. Tell his cheap butt to get 2 more fans.

do it!

two fans sandwhich a radiator to be push pull, so not staggered like that. He'll still need 2 more fans.
