Hey guys I know I've asked alot of questions over the past few days but I just want to make sure I do everything right. My final question is my temps are ok and everything, but I just ordered some new Scythe Ultra Kaze 120x38mm fans with a fan controller for my heater core. Is it more effective to put them on top of the rad in a pull configuration or on the bottom in a push config? I only have two fans so I can't do a push/pull (plus theres not enough room because I only have one fan shroud and if I added another it would overlap the mobo) so it has to be one or the other.

So which is it guys? Push? or Pull?

Thanks for all the guys have helped me out so much and are the main reason my first water cooling attempt was a success!! :)

I use my Untra KAZE on my heater core in a push config so that air is pushed over the fins. Try both ways and see. In any case, temps shouldn't change by more than 3-4C between the 2 methods.
