treetops422 Depends on the fan, if it's not made to pull, push is default and cheaper.

chas1723 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.

roost610 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.

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?

Destrto 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.

Shawnb99 I always strive for push/pull, no matter the rad space.

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 !
