So I went out and bought a Thermaltake Water 2.0 Extreme because my Zalman liquid cooler just simply wasn't up to the task anymore. I also picked up a couple Corsair AF120 High Performance fans because I price matched them down to $11.25 a piece and figured a push/pull might net me some benefits. Turns out running the push/pull setup only nets me 2-3c cooler temps (under load, Prime95), whereas on my Zalman it made a 4-8c difference. In your guys opinion, should I just leave the fans on the cooler or place them in other locations in the case (Corsair 500R)?
Zalman Ultimate Liquid Cooler (Prime95 load) : 82c
Thermaltake Water 2.0 Extreme Push setup (Prime95 Load): 63c
It's been a long day, don't think I can figure this one out for myself right now.
