  1. Most configurations have one set of fans blowing air onto the Radiator to cool it. By adding another set up fans on the other side to pull air you are increasing the airflow over the Radiator. However the boost is minimal in most cases. I have tried it before and didn't see any difference. Those on here that have tried it reported added cooling of 1-5 degrees.
    The size and Material of the radiator will make a much more noticeable difference.

    I will pull :) ,but I'm changing stock fans,what fans should I pick ?
  3. well the stock fans for that unit do work very well. the only downside is that they are not quiet. You said that isnt an issue for you.
    If you decide that you do want to turn down the volume a little then you cant go wrong with this unit:

    Its really excels in applications where it has to push air through tight spaces like a radiator. and its MUCH quieter then the Corsair stock fans.

    Man im pulling air from my room to my case ,will noctua nf -f12 work better than stock or even sp120 quiet edition?
  5. The bigest advantage the Noctuas will give you is silence. The Corsair fans are pretty hefty so I dont think you will notice much of a performance boost but you will notice a volume difference. and the Noctuas will probably beat the Corsair quiets when it comes to noise.

    I didn't ask for volume ,I asked if it would be better than the stock or the sp120 (quite or performance ) when I'm pulling
    What I ask if : will noctua be better on pulling than stocks or sp120(quite or performance)
    That's my question ,could you help me?

    The stock fans will be fine.
    you will not notice any real difference by switching to the Noctuas.
  8. If you really dont care about sound then try this:

    it will sound like a jet engine but it will give you a considerable boost in air flow over your radiators.
    seriously though dont try to hold a conversation in the room while these things are going.

    Hahahahahaha fuck you man,64 dbA wttf
    I will pick the noctuas..
  10. If you go witht he deltas you probably want to get a fan control, I havent tried these plugged straight into the motherboard headers so I cant say how it would react.
    as far as performance goes I really dont think you will find something that gives better cooling.

    That is why I didnt mention them straight away. they are practically unbeatable in performance but they are not meant for the desktop user because they are so loud. They are usually used in server rooms where no one is there to hear them.
