What about this fan for cooling the rad?

515 11
Hey, I was on ebay and I came upon this fan for cooling the heater core. And I was wondering if its worth it?
I got a bunch of like 53 CFM fans would they work? Using a push/pull configuration.

In case you care, that sucker (blower?) will be mighty noisy. Lots of flow though, and cheap. A quieter alternative would be multiple quiet fans (by size--12cm, design, and/or under-volted)

Stay cool!

i would say go get 4 ~110 cfm fans and arrange them in a push pull, it will cost a little more, but be all the more effective...i have one of these, awesome fan!!! its about 10 yrs old and it still kicks ass...

Get four of the high CFM fans and buy a fan controller. I have the Zalman 5 1/4" bay fan controller seen here. I have my fans all the way up during the day and all the way down for night.

Why don't you try, and find out? I'm guessing (others can correct me) that two of those fans in push-pull should be fine for all but the most extreme overclocking. If not, you can get noisier later.

if you can, make a custom fan shroud so the fans are like 4 inches away from the fins on the core, it will allow a more even airflow over the coild maximizing the the fans power.... good luck and let us know how it works

Make sure you get a shroud setup on it
