My System Specs

Default Push/Pull config - Hyper 212+ Owners

Looking to add some fan(s) to my Hyper 212+, currently on a 920. I'm looking for a good combination of fans for some decent temps, but not getting too loud. I have my Zalman fan controller that I'll be using. I also have some Zalman 120mm fans if they'd do the trick, just not sure how they are for static pressure. Something that can probably do up to 2000rpm would suffice, don't want to hear it too much.

Those Zalman fans will do great. They are generally the best at any noise level on a radiator. You'll have a hard time finding fans that push more air for the same noise level unless you buy some H1011 San Aces (good luck finding any) and running them at 5-6V.

Awesome, I'll just use them. I had them on my rad, worked great. I'll use them.

So for RPM, the push fan should be set a bit higher?

I'm no expert but I would think you would want the pull faster as it would draw air from the sides as well as directly from the other fan. If the push was faster it might cause a blockage in the fins of the cooler cause it could not get through the slower moving pull fan? Just a guess but I'm setting up a push pull cooler with a fan control with temp sensors and will be interesting to try a few things out.
