1) dont remember at the moment
2) simple math? how many 120mm fans can fit on a dual 120mm radiator? 120mm*2 = 240! 240 split to 120mm [your fan size..] = 2!!! tough math eh? you can have none too but I Wouldn't suggest that anyway..

I dont really have time to start answering the rest, maybe later when imb ack.

off to dinner sorry.

its recommended to use two, as it was built to work with two.... anyway the more---the better lol, although more power consumption.

Tygon and Clearflex/Masterkleer are basically the same. They all carry the water at the same speed, the tygon is just a little more giving and costs about 5x more.

You should have intake fans because they help keep other internal components cool.


I use 4 fans on my rad, 2 inside the case blowing into the rad. and 2 mounted onto the radiator

Yes and no... The air from inside the case already is alot cooler from having water cooling which eliminates the circulation of hot air from air cooled components. Thus the air inside my cas eis only marginally hotter than outside air.

The difference isnt even acknowledgable
