NZXT S340 - Front Radiator Mounting

58 months ago

I know I'm over-thinking things, but when I put my build together I opted to go with a pull configuration on my front radiator and now I'm second guessing the methodology. I bought a Cooler Master Nepton 240M based on it's reviews for quiet operation. In my mind, it has to be quieter pulling air through the radiator than pushing, so that's how I mounted the fans. They provide good flow above and below my GPU as a result, and CPU temps idle at 30C on my 4690K @ 4.4k 1.3v and peak at 86c under prime95 load.

So, there is no problem with my setup, it seems, but I'm curious to know what others have done - and their results. My assumption is that my case temp might rise a bit but load cpu temps would lower if I put the fans in a push arrangement. I'm also curious about noise. Any comments would be greatly appreciated.
