    I gotta quick question for you guys, it may seem like a dumb one but to this day i'm not exactly certain how push pull works :eek:. I have a Thermalright Ultima-90 CPU cooler and i want to set it up in a push pull config with 2 92mm fans, this just a temporary setup until i get my watercooling going in a month or so. Anyway, the CPU cooler will be positioned vertically with the first fan (setup as intake) on the front sucking air from the front of the case and the second fan (setup as exhaust) on the back of the Ultima will be exhausting air into the back of the case, is this push pull or something else entirely?

    Yup. That's push pull. I did that on an Arctic Freezer 64 pro and gained a couple of degrees.
    KBD says thanks.

    i will see how it goes, i will try with one fan first, then with 2, if there is a difference i will leave it on.
