Hey people. I've got a couple of questions. 1. I have a Hyper 212 Evo bought a long time ago, and the stock fan it came with recently stopped working. So, bought new ones. I also only had one fan on the heatsink till now, but want to use these new fans in a push/pull setup, which we'll talk about later. The problem I have now is, I have changed my place of living, during this time, and the retail box that had the accessories is abroad, in a different country and frankly I don't even remember where I kept it. So, checked online to only find the accessory kit that CM store used to sell is out of stock and probably phased out / not sold anymore. Here's the link to the product in question - https://www.cmstore.eu/spare-parts/cooling/accessories/hyper-212-evo-accessories-pack-old-version-no-am4-but-with-socket-775/ Could you guys link me to a working listing or perhaps even a different 120MM set of fan brackets, to hold the fan with the heatsink? I couldn't find any online. There are folks online who advised to use zipties to hold the fan. I have lots of them lying around, but how to do this? Is it even safe? 2. About that push/pull setup now, I've seen stories of most setups dropping only around 2-5C in push/pull. So, is push/pull, in your opinion, worth it? Or perhaps buy an enthusiast TIM solution like the Arctic Silver 5, instead of push/pull, and use the extra fan I have for the case (CM 690 II Advanced) ? Thanks for reading, and probably replying. Happy belated new year, folks!
Newbie PC Builder here. I wanted the 360 model, but it won't fit on top of the case (phantom eclipse p400), but it can mount on the front of the CPU with an intake configuration once I removed the 3.5 slots (don't need them). How do I install this for a front configuration? Instruction manual doesn't address this configuration really. Do I mount the fans to the radiator the same exact way? Or Should the fans be facing the outer side of the case (logo facing which way) and then the radiator is in the inside? Is there software that controls which way the fan spins? Instructions had nothing but pics! Thanks in advance!
