Today I got a Seidon 240m for my computer as a replacement cooler. I was going to hook it up in a Push Pull configuration in a HAF XB Evo case.

I ran into one problem thought the video card I have (Gigabyte Windforce GTX 770) is a tad to long to allow one of the standard 25mm thick 120 fans to fit. I ended up adding a 120 to one side of the radiator in a pull configuration while leaving the other side empty in just a push configuration.

My question is should I get another low profile fan for the other side of the radiator or is that a waste of time?

Will there be any issues running the radiator in a push push pull configuration?

The fans I have been able to find that are lowprofile are linked bellow.

Depends on how high of an overclock you want. The 240mm radiator is going to be more than enough for most overclocks, so while you'll only have either a push or pull fan, it's still more than enough. However, for best performance you will want a push/pull configuration, and yes, you'll need a full four slim profile fans. I'd assume you'd want the same fans as what you have...if you can fit a full size and a slim profile together, I'd have the full size as your push and slim as your pull. Or, just get four slim profile fans and it doesn't matter.

I currently have a Intel I5 2500k running 4.6ghz at 1.38v I am hoping I can push it to around 1.42v and get a 4.8-5ghz overclock. Depending on temps I might push it even further from there I am not sure if I wanna push it much further then that thought. I want the processor to last another year at least.
