hyper 212 evo. push-pull configuration

Buying a hyper 212 evo tomorrow. If i do push-pull with it does that mean one fan on the cooler is intaking air and the other fan is exhausting air. Ex. 1 fan oriented so it is intake and the other fan orientated for exhaust. is that how push pull works?

Yes. But generally does not improve thermal performance by a significant margin.

The Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO comes with only one fan. You can purchase a second as the clips are shipped with the packaging of the cooler for both fans (but only one fan).

And yes. If you have 2 fans, one should be an intake and the other an exhaust on this cooler. The exhaust should push air toward the exhausts of the case (either back or top).

Make sure the arrows on the fans are pointing the same way...Usually towards the back of the case.

Don't bother. It adds no performance and in many tests actually causes you to lose 1-2c of cooling performance. The cooler is designed for 1 fan not 2.

Won't make a difference.
