Default What is Push-Pull Cooling??

I wanted to get the 3D Galaxy Cooling system because it's been stated as an easy to install beginner type of cooling kit so I wanted to try my hand at it. In the article located here http://www.motherboards.org/reviews/...re/1598_2.html it discussed something about how it would be compatibile with push-pull cooling. It's in the second paragraph from the bottom. Can someone explain this to me and discuss how I could install it?? Thanks.

im not sure but i think its where you have 2 fans on the radiator and one fan push the air over it(blow) and the other pulls it(suck)


so you just have 2 fans and they spin in different directions

Ya that is exactly it, they are actually spinning the in same direction, and facing the same way. So you have 1 fan pushing the air through the radiatior and the fan on the other side pulling it out.

Is this a push pull setup then?? Cause that was what I kind of wanted in mind. In this scenario do all the fans face the same way? Including the fan in the fan which pulls the air in.

Ok well near your radiatot, the fan that is inside of your case should be pushing air out through the radiator, and if there is a fan on the outside of the radiator it should be moving air in the same direction.

Noo, you're understanding it wrong. In order to have this "push cooling" thing, you have to have another fan mounted on the other side of your radiator blowing outwards. This way, you'll have 2 fans attached to your radiator both blowing the same way.

The one at the front of the case? Ya have that one blow air into the case. But then you should have a 120mm fan at the back of your case, and one on the outside of the radiator. Then both of those should be blowing air in the same direction, out of the back of the case. All your fans should blow in the same direction, to get the best airflow.
