Tags: Cooler Master Fan Intel i5 Evo Components Last response: April 20, 2012 3:48 AM in Components Share julh87 April 20, 2012 12:31:28 AM 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 More about : 212 evo push pull question noob2222 April 20, 2012 1:00:59 AM Actually the fan on the outflowing side needs to be faster because its pull surface is blocked by the fins. The most ideal setup is to find a ccw rotation fan but they are hard to find. http://www.dangerden.com/store/papst-4312l-120mm-fan.ht... But yes, the fan you pointed out will work julh87 April 20, 2012 2:08:23 AM so my Silverstone 120MM FM121 110CFM gonna be the pusher and the stock 212evo fan the puller is that right ?

What the make/model/CFM of that rear exhaust fan? julh87 April 20, 2012 2:27:52 AM the rear fan is a 120mm 1200rpm 17dba that come with the case (CM storm enforcer) i dont know the cfm but thats probly crap so u sugest the stock evo pusher and the Silverstone puller ? WR2 April 20, 2012 2:32:44 AM FM121 pulling 120 CFM warm air off the CPU cooler is pushing it ... what? A 48 CFM rear fan?
