Negative Positive pressure

Noob here. Im building a pc and am contemplating putting two 120mm fans in the FRONT and installing a PUSH/PULL liquid radiator cooler at the top(6-fans total). I don't have a fan at the rear. Will this work efficiently?

    It should work fine. However with negative pressure you will need to clean more often as it will suck more dirt in.
  2. https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811352072&ignorebbr=1 Thats the case and it has a pretty nice filter. The 2x 120mm fans will be sucking air through the front and pushed out the top (Through the Radiator). That's cool right? Just want to double check! haha

    It'll work. Just that with the 4 fans moving air out and 2 moving it in the net effect is negative pressure. Meaning more dust will be sucked in. Not a HUGE deal unless you live in a dustbowl. Just something to keep in mind.
  4. It always works better 1 pushing, 1 pulling.
  5. I'd be wary of a setup that primarily gives negative pressure in the case, for the reason bjornl mentioned above. Particularly if you're using a liquid cooling radiator, which will be difficult to clean between it's deep & narrow fins.

    The case you linked will support 3x 120mm fans in the front, which would be my recommendation to better balance out the 4x fan push/pull cooler.
