Any benefit to 4 fans on an H100i versus the stock 2?

The title basically says it all. Is there any benefit to having fans on both sides of the rad instead of just one side? Also, if anyone has any articles about this, that would be greatly appreciated.

The stock fans do just fine.

Depends upon the fans a little. You may be able to pull off lower fan speeds for the same cooling amount. If you use high quality fans with high static pressure it doesn't matter as much. LinusTechTips did some testing (youtube) and pretty much proved it.

The testing by LinusTechTips you mentioned can be found in this video. It's a good video and is worth watching.

Basically, the bottom line is no. Just put 2 in pull and you're sorted.

indeed on mine and my sons H100i's i swaped out the stock fans for high static pressure quiet edition SP120's they seem to work very well.

There is maybe a 3-5C Difference between just 2 and 4 fans.

The stock fans are SP corsair fans so just adding 2 more would give you a boost no need to replace the stock fans.
