Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo push/pull question

Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo push/pull question. I recently just built my first gaming pc, and I have a question about the CPU fan, in my case a Hyper 212 Evo. The fan is vertical, blowing air to the front or the back of the case. I decided to flip the fan so it puts air out the back, and with further research I found this is a pull method. My question is, will a pull method work without a push fan, or if I have one fan should it always be push? Thank you for the help. As stated earlier I'am a noob and would like to start gaming as soon as possible

A pull method will also work. In reality push vs. pull has very little difference, and push+pull gives small cooling boost.

With only 1 fan - it is always better to keep it as push, rather than pull.

I have a Hyper 212 evo with only the stock fan, my 912+ has a 20cm front intake and 120 back exhaust. I have positioned the 212 evo to push the air at the back of the case, so the exhaust can take it out. At full 100% load, I get 50 to 52 C across all my cores on the I7 with room temperature around 20/21 after 1hour run. The 212 evo never spins more than the lowest setting.

But if your case configuration doesn't have an exhaust, sometimes it is better to put the CPU cooler fan as a pull, because it will be closer to the exhaust holes and vent heat out. Also depending on the case, a vertical positioning can help make use of the laws of physics - hot air goes up - and more easily vent the heat outside of the case.

To give a proper answer to your question - tell us what case do you use, how many case fans, what type of fans, etc. What is the other hardware in the computer? What type of video card? Does the video card have axial or blower cooler? One puts the heat of the video card out, while the other dumps most of it in the case.

So, I don't need the push fan to have good airflow still? Sorry for the questions, I'am very concerned with overheating.

We need more information!

I have a back fan and a fan in the front of the case. There is also one on the top of the case, but I lonely have 2 fan headers on the mobo.

What is the case brand and model?
What is the video card brand and model?
How big are the fans on the case?

Sorry for being a noob, and I'm doing this off of memory. The r9 270x was from Sapphire. The fans were all 120mm I'm pretty sure and it the case is the Galaxy 01 I believe.

Put the 212 evo in push configuration, to the back of the case. Plug the front and back exhaust fans, Get a molex to fan header cable.

Use it to connect the other fan. Overall, you can survive even without the top exhaust. The case you have is spacy and with sufficient air.
