    so side by side results:

    Idle
    Top/Bottom/Both




    The CPU has a 6°C lower idle when both fans are used as opposed to singular orientations in both cases.

    Loaded

    Top/Bottom/Both



    The CPU has a 6°C lower load when both fans are used as opposed to singular orientation of a fan pulling air through the cooler.
    The CPU has a 9°C lower load when both fans are used as opposed to singular orientation of a fan pushing air through the cooler.

    Re: CPU Cooling - Thermalright True Black

    Wow thanks for the indepth test. I'm definately going to go with a PushPull setup on the True Black now.. those temps are nice ina small case, hopefully I'll be able to go slightly lower with my antec's air cooling. I wasn't too sure what to expect, but 6oC seems good to be, especially for a single fan.

    Thanks vary much TakTak (almost typed tictacthere.. :S)

    TBH, i was surprised at the difference that it made, i was expecting 1-2c max deviation

    and it wouldn't be the first time someone has called me TicTac


    couldn't measure the ambient temp as i don't have a thermometer but it was quite nippy in my room, i would guesstimate ~ 10c

    Re: CPU Cooling - Thermalright True Black

    Awesome results posted there, thanks for doing the test (Can't give thanks on the post ).

    Something that wasn't mentioned in the summary at the end was the difference that the configurations made to the rest of the system. Using one fan to pull had the CPU cooler but the Motherboard and GPU hotter than using one fan to push. I think this is because you don't have an exhaust vent close to the CPU so the hot air has to pass the Motherboard Chipset and GPU before exiting the case so not a problem in a Coolermaster CM690 for instance, but worth considering if your ability to exhaust air isn't very good.

    I think I'm going to do a similar test when I upgrade my PC, thanks for the idea

    Re: CPU Cooling - Thermalright True Black

    I did a quick test last night because I was curious and had a spare fan to use. I hope this is of use to anyone else that may stumble across this thread. (FYI the camera date is 1 day off)

    This is my system


    This is what I did:
    I got my old Silverstone 120mm fan out the loft(~45CFM).
    Opened my CM690 case(original model).
    Lowered my overclock to 3.5Ghz for testing(so the CPU was the only thing running out of spec).
    Used 3 different configurations for the test: Push, Pull and Push-Pull.
    Ran IntelBurnTest at high setting.

    Environmental conditions:
    23 degrees centigrade(dc) for the room as indicated by my Oregon Scientific Weather Station.
    21dc at the bottom of my case according to NZXT Sentry 2 sensors.
    34dc behind the motherboard according to NZXT Sentry 2 sensors.
    Each test was run for about five minutes.
    In-between each test the computer was turned off to change the fan configuration.

    Here are the results: Pull left, Push right


    Push-Pull


    Notes:
    The Silverstone fan is considerably less powerful than the Enermax Magma, ~45CFM for the Silverstone fan and 69CFM for the Enermax.
    I use 2x 140mm Enermax T.B. Silence fans at the top of the case as exhaust fans.
    I have 1x Sharkoon 140mm fan at the bottom drawing air into the case, ~ 70CFM.
    The side panel of the case was open.
    I used the Enermax fan the for push only result and the Silverstone fan for the pull only result due to wiring complications with the Enermax.

    Preliminary conclusion:
    A push-pull configuration manages to provide 3-4 degrees drops in maximum temperatures even with unequal fan airflow. The minimum temperatures manage to drop by the same margin as well so the operating temperature seems to shift down by 3-4 degrees. The impact on the rest of the system is less noticeable but both the chipset and GPU are 1-2 degrees cooler during the stress test. I suspect this is because the fans are drawing air away from the chipset and GPU to force through the heatsink and then promptly dump it outside the case.

    As you can see push-pull definitely provides a decent reduction in temperatures, not just for the CPU but other components as well(as long as you are using the CM690 and have the air flow going up). I am purchasing some more wire clips to permanently mount a second Enermax Magma 120mm fan on my TRUE. When I do this I'll do some more testing and complete a more thorough review.

    Re: CPU Cooling - Thermalright True Black

    A couple of things to note here.
    Unless the fans are running at a fixed speed the numbers are going to be skewed depending on the speed control method.

    ps taktak, have you thought about cutting a hole in the bottom of your case? giving the cooler a direct path air vent would probably help it.

    Re: CPU Cooling - Thermalright True Black

    Fan speeds were at 100% at all times. Thought I'd covered everything

    Re: CPU Cooling - Thermalright True Black

    OK, one other thing to mention is you cannot trust manufactures numbers on sound levels and CFM, the reason is that there is no one fixed method to test these and the test setup can skew the numbers greatly.
    Just attaching it to a cpu cooler will have an effect on the air flow of a fan.

    What you should do is run a test with a single fan then run the same test again with the other fan to see how they compare.

    PS do you know which silverstone fan it is? (model number should be on the sticker)
