DIY Push/Pull Fans

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

Ok, so I have an Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro instaled on my current build, but also have a spare Xilence XilentBlade LITE lying around doing nothing, if I was to pull the fan from the Xilence and try and attach it to the back of the Arctic Freezer, would I need to change anything on the fans to make one push or pull?

I think if i just stick the both of them on they would both be pull, is this the case?

Also the back of the Arctic is rounded, how could I get around this, possible just use the Xilence as it is more square, in your opinion which is the better heatsink?

The Freezer 7 is better... Put the fan in pull, leave the stock fan in push, zip-ties.

Cheers for fast response,

I read a guide about cooling on here, yesterday where the user stuck tape down the sides to reduce air escaping, this would also improve my cooling?

On my motherboard there only one socket for CPU fan, but one for system fan, this will work ok?
