Look dude, I'm NOT saying that there is a temp benefit. I'm saying that it's a pump LIFESPAN benefit. Air sucked into a liquid pump is NOT good.
There was no need for the tude. I didn't even mention a temp benefit. But let's revisit this shall we? It's been stated here in this thread that it's a 1c degree benefit to having them up.
So now the issue is to find out where you can shave that same 1c elsewhere.
I imagine that a Push/Pull setup would do that. Don't you?
Now we're at whether to intake or exhaust. For me I'm exhausting. But I have the ability to do this because my case allows for a spare 120mm fan to mate with the 230mm fan mounted to its ceiling.
Hmmm now where else can I shave some temps?
How about my lapped CPU and H50? Yeah I think that works too.
W/O the Push/Pull setup I was already running -14c from the stock AMD cooler in the Lapped Exhaust setup. At the time I was running one fan paired to the Rad in exhaust I was seeing 34c @ idle. I'd be willing to bet that I see a 4-6c drop in temps when I get everything back together.
So you know what you can do with the attitude right? Parting of cheeks and putting it where the sun don't shine come to mind here. Cause you have no proof to the contrary. But I can show logically how it's not a benefit to run it fittings to the north.

Making such claims is a disservice to this community, but he insists on making them anyway. I guess he is smarter than Corsair or the H50s designer(s).
