post #201 of 305
My TX3 sits atop an AMD 955BE 4.05Ghz. I searched through here for an answer to what I'm about to ask but didn't find a definitive answer. I added a higher rpm/cfm fan to compliment the included fan. The second fan runs at 3500rpm and, I believe around 35cfm. Should the higher rpm fan be pushing or pulling? Does it make a difference? I also have a small (60mm) fan blowing in from the side of the case almost on top of the TX3. Is there a likelihood of disrupted airflow? Any suggestions?
Thanks.

i found no difference but its best to use the higher rpm as pull. biggrin.gif thats what i did to mine before, now removed as it makes no diff in temp maybe 1~2C.

Add me to the club please.

I have 2 Arctic Cooling F9 fans in a Push/Pull config. Here's 2 pics of it running.

hi just built my first computer over the weekend and decided to swap the stock hsf with the cooler master tx3 hyper evo but i have a few questions installing it

does the fan blow on the heatsink or away? do i face the fan towards the front of my cpu?
what's the best way to apply the thermal grease on this? thanks everyone

Welcome to the club.

If you are going with just a single fan setup, then you want the fan on the back of the heatsink pulling the hot air away towards the back of your case. There should be an arrow on the fan - you want it to be pointing towards the rear.

The best way to apply thermal paste is to apply a small pea size amount in the middle of the cpu.

so the fan blows away from the heatsink?
I've been reading about applying thermal greases on HDTs. do i need to fiil in the ridges between the heatpipes? (i'm getting it tomorrow so i haven't inspected it yet)

thanks again

Yes, the fan sucks/pulls the air away.

You only need to apply a small pea size amount in the middle of the cpu. When you put the heatsink on and put pressure on it, the thermal paste will spread out and cover the necessary area of the cpu. Check out this YouTube video to see how thermal paste spreads: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ffK7L0Qj13Q
