i have the same setup as you, except with GT AP-14's, and i have in pull around 1000-1200 rpm, they work amazingly and are dead silent



also, flip your rear fan to intake instead of exhaust, this will help a lot w/ bringing in fresh air

Cheers, Ill go with pull then on both radiators (even if heat rises, I assume the vertical radiator will still benefit from pull).

Problem though is how am I supposed to mount my fans to the radiator and to the case? Seems very tricky to do. This only applies to the internal one though.

How about this:
I screw the fans into the radiator with short screws, in the bottom holes in the fan. Then I screw the fans to the case like you normally do. Would that work? Would the fans be able to hold up the radiator like that? 3 fans, 12 scrwes.

umm no idea, but sounds like an unnecessary hassle/risk, the way i did it was simple and works fine with the provided screws.. i'm not talking about double sided tape or any crap like that, just 3 small pieces of scotch tape on the side, to hold the fan to the rad, which you can remove after you've screwed it in

It's no hassle at all. It would be very easy. The included screws are not very long. After they have gone through the fans theer are only a couple of mm left. Then take 2-3mm away for the case and you are not left by much. I was afraid that might not be enough of screw going into the radiator.

It feels as if my method should work, but if there is any risk I will avoid it. Hmm... Anybody else have any though? Is my method safe?
