Right now, i have a 360 rad on the back of my haf 932, but its right to the back of it, so only about 120 is above the comp, if i add the bitspower rad support I so that it is like off the back around 2 inches, and add an extra fan(since right now it only has 2 fans) how much of a temp improvement will i see? Im using 2 coolmaster 1500rpm fans for it, and its the swiftech one on the back, the rs360 has 3 yate looms. BTW, both are pulling air into the rad.

If you have the fans in push you will get better temps, I tried pull on my set up and it was pathetic.

yes, he means you should set fans so they blow air through the rad. AKA - push.

(-->) = the direction the fans are blowing.


A push/pull setup would look like this.

(-->)Radiator(-->)

The first fan pushes air through the radiator, while the fan on the other side pulls that air away creating much better airflow.

why would i want air pulling from where my computer is? if i do <--rad<-- then it would be pulling air from way behind it, which is most likely cooler right?

That's up to you. I was just explaining what push/pull is.

I've got my 360 on the top of my haf X Pushing and pulling out. My temps are low 20's idle. I've tried the other way around... But pulling air in kind of screwed up the airflow in my case and temps were 5-6c higher.
