So I was browsing around and I saw this picture on Maximum PC. I have never seen a radiator and fan combination like this. I've seen push/pull setups but nothing where a few fans are stacked on one side.
Would anyone know what the purpose of this is? I am only guessing that it basically acts as a fan shroud to create spacing between the radiator and the case. Stacking fans may also increase static pressure as well. Like how thicker fans have higher static pressure. Just a guess.
that would be my guess as well. though it does look like 3 fans stacked. dont know why you would do that though. Very clean looking case though

Yeah looks like a very clean build. But I have no idea why they would stack 3 fans like that. Just get a fan shroud. They are cheaper than fans and they look a whole lot better than that.
Could anyone here do a simple test for me? Just a quick comparison with 1 fan and two + fans on a radiator. One configuration in push and one in pull. Then just hold a piece of paper up and see how far it bends.
If there is a difference, then this could be an amazing find. Stack 3 fans to double as a "shroud" and increase cooling performance.
I know the push/pull method will give it a bit of performance.
