WHICH FAN TO PUSH AND WHICH TO PULL AIR FROM HEATSINK

Hello, which fan should i use to push and which to pull air
-scythe slip stream 120mm pwm adjustable:
Static Pressure: 0.10 - 1.06 mmH2O / 0.98 - 10.40 Pa
Air Flow: 23.0 - 76.53 CFM (39 - 130 m³/h)

-Xigmatek Gaia stock fan:
Air Flow 56.3CFM
Air Pressure 1.57 mmH2O

I'm asking because of differences in cfm and pressure

    I'd let the stock fan do the pulling. The other fan is also a PWM controlled fan, and with max CFM being higher than the stock fan it's a better choice.

    In other words: Set the Scythe to push, stock fan to pull.
  2. Or alternatively buy another Scythe slip stream fan so they will work together rather than against each other due to differing air flow ratings.
