I heard mixed discussions for which way the fans should be pointed on the top of my phantom 410 case for the best performance. I hear people saying to switch the direction of the fans to push air inside the case to cool the cpu/ram assembly on the X79 platform. But, I also hear from others that the best way to keep the rig cool is to pull the air out of the top. Obviously i am going to be mounting the H100 on top of my case. Does it still pay to be pushing air into the case from the top if it is going to get warmed up from the H100 anyway? Also would it be better if I did a Push AND Pull config on my H100 so I would have 4 fans on it?
