Push pull or not?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have bought a Thermalright True spirit 140 and i have sold my old cpu cooler and i was wondering if i should by another ty 140 fan and run my cpu cooler in push pull?

How much difference will there be in temperatures and noise if i use my new cpu cooler in push pull?

Is push pull with my cpu cooler more extra noise then more low temperature? (have no push pull experince on a cpu cooler)

You can expect something between 1 and 3°C better temps with a second fan...

What Elohim said.

I think much of the improvement in many cases (no pun) is a result of better airflow out of case with the pull only fan versus push only fan.
Same applies to the push/pull setup.

I not only removed rear grill but also built a duct from back of cooler to rear vent so none of the hot exhaust air to mix with cool case air. wink.gif Hope you can see it.

push pull works best with dual towers.

It can improve things for single towers, but is often marginal (under 5C).

I can't say about the TS140 performance, there are probably some figures available for that somewhere (Vortez seem to do push-pull testings). I'm pretty happy with its performance in single fan configuration, and securing the fan is too much of a hassle to even think about push pull smile.gif

So, not worth the bother. The Archon X2 seems to like push pull, but it's designed for it. In other words, too much hassle, more noise, and quite expensive for the marginal gains.
