Ok I am about to install the H100i the rad will be going inside top part of my Rosewill Thor V2 case. What do you guys recomend push or pull and why?

The rosewill Thor v2 case has 4 fans the top and rear fan are exaust (pull), and the front and side one are intakes (push).

I was thinking on the H100i to make one of the fans pull (the one near the rear top end of the case) and the other fan push? both of course are 120mm fans.

Help a noob out =)

I use push because it does keep the temperatures a little bit lower, however push makes it harder to clean the radiator.

In this video you can see what happens with push, Linus also recommends pull - Just take a look at the video and get a proffesional answer from one of the biggest and best tech guys on youtube. :)

Is push/pull out of the question? Personally, I prefer push over pull, but push/pull is the best.

But, push is best in this situation.

A noob question before i finish up my build tonight, so i will be installing the Rad (H100i) inside of my top Rosewill thor case. So in order to make the fans PULL AIR the front of the fan should be up looking at the top of the case or looking down to the case. Yea is a noob question but i have been working on my build all day and im burned out... you how is that feel, when you can't think straight no more jajajaa.

PS- I wont be going push/pull... just pull

If it's just pull, the fans will be on top of the rad, blades facing up.

Look at the third picture and face the bars of the fans into the top of the case. That is the simplest way of explaining it.
Hope this helped.

I just made a video of this today on my youtube tech channel and I discovered than running in push does keep temperatures lower.

Check out the video:

Use a proper fan on the radiator. If you were to use a pressure optimized fan and not the cheap junk that came with the "kit" you would have the exact same temperatures. It is also much easier to clean a rad. using a pull configuration because you do not have to take off any fans. Just take off the radiator. Blow it out and you're done!

You don't want them pulling hot air from the inside of your case over your rad. You want them taking cold air from outside the case. This of course puts warm air into your case but as long as you have fans in the back exhausting your kosher.

Not sure on the exact cfm or count of your fans but ideally a slight positive pressure which this will also contribute.

In the end, no need to take anyone's word for it. Try both and let the temps tell you what you want to know.
