Hi all,
I have this dual fan cooler. Now the fans are mounted as both pushing air into the heatsink. Though, I read some articles where the fans were mounted as to let air flow in one direction, one fan pulls air in and the other blows it away. What's the difference between these 2 methods? Which one is best?

Push-Pull is best because the fans do not work against one another.

Some heatsinks also block the sides making a push push not work right at all.

I see thanks.
Both fans are at default mounted with the cooler master logo on both the outer sides, so i guess they push air against each other. I will invert one then. Thanks for the help

Very strange that they are like that.

Must be a mess up or something. I have seen many images of the cooler from online shops showing the fans in push pull.

This non English review shows exactly how the fans should be

It looks like the logo is on BOTH sides. as long as the motor is facing the heatsink on one side and facing away on the other you have it right. Many fans also have an air direction arrow on the side.
