I recently ordered an Antec 300 Illusion case:

and the Corsair CWCH50-1 Cooler:

My question is, if I mount the cooler fan in a push-pull exhaust config to the rear antec 120mm fan, would any difference in RPM or CFM cause turbulence, lowering my heating capabilities?

And one more thing, I found the fans included with the case are molex connectors, the one with the cooler is a 3 or 4-pin. would that cause some kind of inefficiency? Anyone with these parts have any input?

I haven't received either yet so I can't check this stuff myself, it's my first build though so I'm kind of nervous. :sweat:

edit: Just another note, I plan to overclock it eventually, which is why I got the aftermarket cooler.

It is better advisable to have the same fans on either side of the Radiator with a common power source, using a splitter or something like that.
The RPM difference will cause a drop in pressure or a rise in pressure between the 2 fans there by causing an interference between the free movement of the blades of the fan, since the fans for the rigs aren't meant for such high velocity winds conditions :)  .
It would be safer to go with 2 New fans of the same make and same capacity......

I have 2 H50s and both in Push Pull configs..... but one is with the two Corsair fans and the other is with 2 HAF 922 Basckside fans....
