pull config louder than push?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Just a quick and simple question:

Is pull louder than push?


More detail:
I know for slowly rotating fans, pull is better than push. However when I tried it, it seemed to me as though pull was also MUCH louder than push (fans same speed). Is that normal or a common known fact?

I should imagine pull is louder than push. If you're pulling, the fans are blowing air upwards, out of the radiator whereas if you're pushing, the sound of the air is being 'dampened', if you will, by whatever's above it. In this case, the radiator.

that makes sense. I guess this thread has fulfilled its purpose, how do I close it?
