That's why you want a 38mm fan for your heat sink especially if it has fins that are dense, so it can push air through them easier than a 25mm fan would. A 25mm fan would be ideal for a case, whereas a 38mm for a heat sink.

As for positive and negative air pressure here's how it goes:

Positive air pressure is when you have more air going into the computer than going out, which means that air will try to escape any way it can from any hole. So basically positive air pressure = more intake.

Negative air pressure is the opposite, you have more air going out that coming in. This means outside air will try and find its way inside the case by any opening available, such as side panels and grilles and stuff. So basically negative air pressure = more exhaust.
as for static pressure, luckily i just recieved 3 120 X 38mm 3k rpm scythe fans so i will be switching my xiggy fan for one of them but i am worried that the weight of it will pull the heatsink off the cpu a bit.

Don't worry if you've mounted it properly it won't be a problem, they aren't that heavy nor is the heat sink so you'll be A-OK . I have a Kaze 1k RPM on my Accelero S1 and it doesn't even bend it, regardless of it being upside down.

I turned mine now it exhaust through the top fans, i am not sure if that would be better for airflow. Oh if you are interested in how IC7, AS ceramique and AS5 TIMs hold up in my test, visit my thread.

I'm sure this has been answered many times, but is it worth picking up a 80x15mm fan for the back side of the motherboard?
