So im building a new pc and im planning to oc my i5-2500k a bit like 4.5ghz so i took a cm 212 evo whit 1x

Silverstone 120MM FM121 110CFM
http://www.directcanada.com/products/?sku=17670AC7817&v...

so i wanna do a push/pull config whit that fan + the one that come along whit the 212evo

is that possible ?? (i read around a bit and its seem that u need 2 have identical fan for double push but im not sure for push/pull)

and if yes which fan is the pusher and and which is the puller


thank you

Since the CPU cooler air flow is being pushed at the rear exhaust fan you want to consider that was well.
What the make/model/CFM of that rear exhaust fan?

A 2nd fan that matches the 212+ Evo fan and a 3rd 120mm-140mm fan for the top position.

People are having pretty good success getting 4.5Ghz on the 212+ Evo with just the stock fan.
You don't need to pay for a $21 fan (with shipping).
