Hey, I have got NZXT Kraken X73 for my new i9-10900K build; I have also ordered additional 3 Noctua NF-F12 iPPC 3000 PWM fans to do Push/Pull with the radiator. I will mount the radiator at the front and use Noctua 3000 RPM fans to push air through the radiator and NZXT 2000 RPM fans to pull air into PC. And I will set up 3 Aer F120 120mm Case fans at the top and 1 Aer F140 140mm Case fan at the back to exhaust air out that will come with NZXT 710 case.

Now my question is: the radiator fans have different RPM 3000 vs 2000; I have gone for Noctua NF-F12 iPPC 3000 PWM because I thought if I set them up on the outside of the radiator to push air inside; it will help NZXT 2000 RPM fans to intake air into the system more efficiently. The default 2000 RPM radiator fans will be connected to & controlled by NZXT AIO controller and the 3000 RPM Noctua fans will be connected to & controlled by the motherboard (I believe the speed of the fan as well according to the system need automatically by bios?). The reason I am going for push/pull combo because i9 10th gen gets hot a lot and I am trying to have setup so that I can avoid thermal throttling on full load. Of course the fans won't be running at 3000 RPM all the time (I believe the speed of the fan as well according to the system need automatically by bios?), but the reason I am asking about it because when higher RPM fans will push into radiator, the pull fans won't get that amount of CFM as the 27mm thick radiator will neutralize the much of the air pressure. So I am trying to setup in a way so that when needed, the higher RPM fans push through enough CFM for pull fan to work with. What do you think? Will I plan work or will it backfire? I can still change the 3 additional fans; can you please suggest which one will be better:

The NZXT X73 Aer P 2000 PWM - 36 dB(A) - 500 RPM (Min) - 73.11 CFM - 7.63 mm
i) Noctua NF-F12 iPPC 3000 PWM - 43.5 dB(A) - 750 RPM (Min) - 110 CFM - 3.94 mm
ii) Noctua NF-F12 iPPC 2000 PWM - 29.7 dB(A) - 450 RPM (Min) - 71.22 CFM - 3.94 mm
iii) NF-A12x25 PWM 2000 PWM - 22.6 dB(A) - 450 RPM (Min) - 60 CFM - 2.34

Please help me! Thank you!!
