Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

so i just got a CORSAIR HYDRO SERIES H60 AIO and i have i also ought 2 corsair sp120 fans to replcae the fan it has on it so if i want pull push i would put the corsair logo on the fan away from the rad on each side right Image result for sp120 probably a really stupid question but i just want to make sure and that how it makes sense to me if it was to push and pull on each other

Almost all fans have arrows on one of the sides indicating which way the air blows. In my experience, fans almost always "blow" out the side that has the frame, so the opposite side to which is pictured above.

Air passes through the back of the fan, if you look there are probably tiny arrows on the fans showing you the airflow direction. You want the front of the fan facing you on the front side of the rad and on the other side of the rad you should be looking at the back of the fan.

I'm unsure how you want it set up, but if you want the air to blow THROUGH the cooler, the logo in the center of the fan does NOT face the cooler.

Agreed^ 

 

Just make sure that however you set it up the fans are both in the same orientation. So you never want to see both front sides or back sides of the fans when mounted to the rad.

What do you think happens if you have two fans facing each other...

The air will not go anywhere.

The air should go THROUGH the radiator

also another thing is it fine to only have 2 screws holding each fan on since it only comes with 4 screws and i don't have any others that are that long

I would have them blowing air out of the case, I'd also limit the airflow to 3 intakes and 2 exhaust, so the rad at the rad at the back and another fan at the top for exhaust.

Usually people do front/bottom as intakes and rear/top as exhaust.

The air is only a couple degrees hotter, nothing significant.

You either have a cool CPU and warm everything else, or slightly cooler everything else and slightly warmer CPU.

Works fine either way.

If I had a single rad I would put it at the back, if I had a dual or triple I would put it at the front.

If a triple at the front doesn't fit then usually top is the only option left.
