    Just got a Antec Kuhler 620 and a 110cfm Scythe fan and was wondering what would be better to have it as until my other fans get here? Currently set as push but don't feel a whole lot of air out the back of case lol.

    Push. So the fan is on the CPU cooler? Air not coming out of the back of the case has to do with lack of case airflow, not necesarilly the CPU fan.

    yup the fan is on the inside of the rad pushing air through and out rear of case.....read a few other posts about negative and positive pressure in case and have 2 90cfm 120mm on front for intake and Antec 3 140mm on top set to low speed on top of case....it's not getting hot, was just curious about using the single fan in push or pull on the rad ;)

    I forgot that the Antec Kuhler 620 is a water unit. It has some densely packed fins on it so you're not going to feel a lot of air coming through. What I do know is that with a radiator like that you want a fan with high static pressure. Not sure how much that Scythe fan has.

    this is the one I'm using
    Code:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835185060
    and these are the ones I ordered
    Code:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835185054
    saw the static pressures somewhere but can't remember what site it was since Scythe doesn't show them on their site, just db's, rpm, an cfm

    amazingly enough the fans I ordered weren't shipped when they were supposed to ship and now they seem to be taking a vacation in Florida :banghead: .....but I was able to get my shipping charges returned since it was their fault, maybe my recent e-mail back to them about shipping being horrible will result in free fans :roll: lol

    Have the two fans as that would give you better performance than one mere fan.
