CPU Cooling 1 fan vs 2 fan

  1. Oct 20, 2016 #1
    Single fan is enough for 6800K?

    like Thermaltake CLW0222-B Liquid CPU Fan or Cooler Master SEIDON 120V Plus Liquid CPU Cooling Fan.

    I want a ans which better for me 2 fan cooler or single fan cooler?

    note: My PC should be RUN minimum 14h/day

    2 fan is best, but make sure one is intake and the other outtake.

    Unless you plan to overclock your system, a single fan for your CPU is enough. My system runs 24/7 and I just have the stock intel heatsink/fan on it, works just fine.

    I think Greg is talking about case fans when he said intake/out-take fans. I would further add that the bigger fans (high airflow fans) should be used for exhaust. Having slightly lower than ambient air pressure inside the case will help with airflow and provide better cooling for the case.
