Nope... not ridiculous, just interesting...

It does pose the question around fan life span and heat dispersion,,, where is the heat actually going?

I run the fan that is attached to the case so that it pulls cool air from outside my case onto the radiator. Then I run the fan that is attached to the other side of the radiator so that it pulls air from inside the case onto the radiator. Basically both fans blow onto the radiator. Push - Push. Ironically i am able to decrease the temp of my CPU by about 5c - 10c. at idle.

I read the article about the push - pull method and gave it a try. Problem was I accidentally mounted the inner most fan the wrong way (blowing toward the radiator rather than away from it. (Push - Push). Realizing my error I flipped the fan around to achieve the Push - Pull method only to find that my CPU actually ran hotter at idle.

At idle:

Push - Pull method = 43c - 45c
Push - Push method = 35c - 38c

Just a side note, I have not tested this method while loading my CPU, but I can't imagine why the result wouldn't be the same. I will run some tests and post my results.

Any response to these findings would be appreciated!

I'm not worried about the term push pull. What is pushing and what is pulling is perspective according to air flow. What I'm about to explain is will be from left to right and my arrows will follow the airflow, and nothing else.

You want good airflow in your case, it is very important. I not sure what you talking about. So you have (⇇FAN⇇H50⇉FAN⇉) or (⇉FAN⇉H50⇇FAN⇇). Either way that's not a good idea. It will throw off your airflow off inside your case. I know you said you got better temps now. But, it's winter your "PUSH/PUSH" is working for you now, but it will not work as good in the summer and other seasons.

For best results for the H50 seams to be adding shroud. Try this:

• For exhaust (⇇Fan⇇Shroud⇇H50⇇Fan)
• For intake (Fan⇉H50⇉Shroud⇉Fan⇉)

I want to know does your GFX card have a air handler? Does it push hot air out the rear of your case, or does just have a fan just cooling GPU? I have no clue what a "BFG 9600 XT" is or I would have told you exhaust or intake works better for you.

Check out the The Corsair H50 Accessory Permalink for more on shrouds and shroud ideas.

add me plz. i'm a noob here..be easy ..
after spending hours on end on different forums looking at push/pull configs, i didn't really see anyone mount the pull fan on the outside of their case..decided to try it out..will post temps when i can. i haven't even powered it on yet.
i'm using corsair's provided fan and the fan that came on my lian li case. will probably add a shroud later. it's currently in a push/pull exhaust.

noob question: i plugged the push fan on CPU_FAN and have the pull fan hooked up to my psu. is this ok??

thanks..and sorry for the crappy phone pic of my work in progress..

I got a fan and a shroud on the outside of my case. Not for any real reason, I just think it looks cleaner like this. As for your "noob question", go into your bios and make sure those fan are at full speed.

Hey finished my build last week and promised to post some pics. Not too impressed with the temps. With a slight OC on my i7-920 to 3.3 GHz I'm pushing 70c after 10 minutes of Prime95.

Using stock TIM, push/pull fans in exhaust config. Gentle Typhoon AP-14 on the back, rated at 1450 RPM and 50 CFM just like the stock Corsair fan that's in front of the rad.<=|fan|shroud|case|H50|fan|<=. The shroud is more for acoustics than airflow, I wasn't brave enough to dremel out the grill on the case. The case has one 120 fan drawing air in the front and three 80's on the sides.

I think the H50 looks cool and gives me room for my RAM heatspreaders and side fan. But it doesn't look like I have any headroom to make a run at 4.0 GHz with the temps as they are now. I may try some better fans.

@Pings - yaay, glad to see you back

I also wanted to post my temps. The OC idle looks good, but it was only running for a minute before I loaded it. Was in a hurry to test it with Prim95. Ambients 70-74F

Nice setup there, many people over here mount their fans outside actually. Because we like to add shrouds and massive fans and stuff

Your fans are plugged in correctly - your fan plugged into CPU fan will probably have some sort of smart-fan control, meaning it will vary speed with temperature. You probably cant do this with the one plugged into the PSU, but thats fine. One fan will be stuck at 100% and one will vary with temperature. If the fans are different I suggest putting your weaker/quieter fan at 100% and putting it in the pull position. Though to be honest if you have it the other way around you're not going to notice much, if any difference.

Anyone interested in more fan tests? Picked up 2 CoolerMaster R4's yesterday.

Did I get thrown under the bus with my small problem?

Quote:
Hmm.. Not sure what has changed but my cpu temps have increased by 5C, up to 37C idle.. Kinda scared me thinking the pressure mod stripped so I checked the nuts but they were fine. I just realized since my room is much hotter than before :-\\
It might be my CM R4 intake fans I have on the rads. It may also be time to clean out dust filters. My room temperature hasnt changed more than 10F.
May be time to get a Sycthe Kaze and a shroud.Hmm.. Not sure what has changed but my cpu temps have increased by 5C, up to 37C idle.. Kinda scared me thinking the pressure mod stripped so I checked the nuts but they were fine. I just realized since my room is much hotter than before :-\\

I think the issue causing this is my room temperature. The temps before were during the coldest times we had here in Florida (high40sF). So this made my room temp much cooler, whereas now my room is warmer.


I thought the shroud was supposed to go <push<rad<shroud<pull
to get more cool air across the rad not <push<shroud<rad<pull
Or is it backwards where it should be pull.......................push

I'm interested in more tests. Wondering how those R4's compare to the GT 15's you had with dual shrouds, if they perform better or not.
