The IPC gain was pretty puny from ivy-haswell, and is easily equalized by Haswell not clocking as high. So unless you are going to make use of AVX2, or are in need of extra cores, then it is really a side grade.

Edit to add:
for a gaming rig, not worth it
for a video editing rig, worth it

Haha! I'm waiting for my Air 240 panels to arrive (custom paint job) and we have the same idea! Slight difference here and there but the concept is the same! thumb.gif

Hi, i just bought a corsair air 240 biggrin.gif using it with m-atx mobo and 11-inches vga card
I'm planning to have a custom loop in this (maybe have vga-wc if possible) smile.gif but i have no idea to put reservoir and pump in it.
Could u guys give me some advice or some pictures with 240 + custom wc would be the best thumb.gif

Would you stack fans?

The idea of push pull is that you push air from one side of the rad, which the density of the rad will resist a bit of the airflow, and then you pull the air through the rad from the other side for a small increment of airflow. You are better off removing the stacking as it doesn't help and only makes it louder.

And if you have thin rads with medium density, push pull won't make a significant difference.

Oh I didn't know...I just thought it looked cool hahaha...once I get the proper mounts i'll move my rad in between to do push/pull...that was my original plan...

You don't need mounts. the first set of fans will fit between the case and the panel in front of it, and then just have the rad and the other set of fans on the inside! thumb.gif

You can mount a pump and small res on the top half of a front 240mm radiator or in theory, remove the sdd cages, drill some holes and mount a normal pump and res in the right section of the air 240 and send the tubes through the grommets.
