Best Fans to use for Thermalright 120 Ultra?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I was thinking of using 2 Scythe S-FLEX SFF21E 120mm Fans in a push pull configuration on the Heatsink and wondered if they would be powerful enough or not?

Also what would be the best fans to use on the heatsink to reduce temps... and hopefully at a low decibal too!

Push pull configuration would provide no benefit. It is best used for long heatsinks, such as tuniq towers or scythes.

And, for your original question, the best fan to use is one that works. Simple as that. No need to buy £30 fans when a £5 will do the same job, just give you 1 or 2 more degrees at full load. That's worth saving £25 in my books.
