Radiator push and pull ? Pull ? push ?

Hi everyone !

I'm about to start my second custom loop, I was wondering about the radiators, is it still better to have a configuration push and pull on 'em ?

I have this on my actual loop, but lately on the loop I've seen, I don't see many push and pull config, so I was wondering if it's still better or it doesn't matter anymore ?

Thank you

I'm gonna use 2 of these : EK-CoolStream Classic PE 360 for a single GPU / CPU if that helps

The situation is still the same. Any trends to go with certain fan setups is likely just a personal preference thing. 720mm of radiator space is going to be plenty for a single GPU and CPU loop regardless of your decision.

(my preference would be fans in pull-only, on very low speed)

Exactly what I was thinking ! I just wanted to be sure, I think pull only is gonna be my choice. Thank you for the heads up !

I always strive for push/pull, no matter the rad space.

Yea, anymore, it's more so a matter of preference. If you get a good set of fans in pull, you can check your idle temps versus your loaded temps, then add fans in push/pull and see that there may only be 1-2 degrees of difference. Especially with 720mm of radiator space.

I just tried it on my own rig, with a cpu/gpu loop and 2 360mm rads. push/pull offered a neglible difference at best during load. So I dropped down to just pull for a quieter setup.

The answer is entirely dependent on the rad being used. In this case, the difference on the PE is incredibly small, to the point it would not be measurable in actual usage - https://www.xtremerigs.net/2015/02/1...-round-2015/5/

So, why add the noise of three more fans for no gain?

Yeah....the little girl hentai avatar is really creeping me out....

Thick rad with high fin density vs thin with low fin count. Ive never had good enough results with push pull to justify all the extra fans.

Depends on the fans being used. I tried push pull with Eloops and saw very little difference in temperatures. Noise went up exponentially due to the design of the fan not liking pull configurations. I went back to push only and the silence is golden.
