Ive got a tt armor, its got 120mm fan pulling air out of the case almost perfectly aligned with the extreme about 3.5 to 4 inches away. so the air coming off the extreme is directly being pulled out anyways.
I tried a little experiment, I disabled the fan mentioned up above. My temps raised about 2 degress on idle, and about 3.5 or so under load, so the push pull method does have some merit, but due to space constraints it would be very diffiicult for for me to get another fan on the extreme with my current configuration.

Owch ,I deserved that

My coolers fins cause a lot of resistance as in I dont feel ANY pressure on the rear side but like randsom there just isnt enough space to put another fan on it, I have thought about putting some ducting on my exhaust fan though , I think that would work well.

I really hope you didnt try the fans facing each other idea, that would turn it into a mini convection oven

ATOJAR,get used to it,a few on these forums,like to crap on noobs and beginners when they ask questions.


I think there is no such thing as a stupid question,we were all noobs at one point or another.Ask away,and hopefully some of the more polite members that were not raised by wolves in a cave will respond poiltely. One fan pushing air on one side,and the other pulling is FAR better then both blowing inward or vice versa.A push pull on this or the new ULTIMA 90,would get you truly fantastic temps.Beating a Tuniq or a bog standard TRU 120,but not the TRUE.Although it would come close to a TRUE with only a 1 fan,and with hundreds of grams less wieght overall.

Plus less stress on the mobo,which is always a good thing.
