Push-Pull configuration space in CM enforcer?

This May sound like a Newbie/ stupid question but will a Push and pull configuration fit my build, looks as if it takes more space, CPU cooler is Dark knight II nighthawk edition.

so a push pull config goes a bit like this right?

^ o0o0o0oooo0o0oo0o0o0o Fan 1

      IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII    Radiator

o0oo0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0 Fan 2

the full config would be something like this am I right?

                                                            two 120mm at top of case (exhaust)

                                                           0000000000    000000000



                                     0                    ^0000000000000000000  120mm 1

Isn't the dark night an air cooler, so whats all the talk about radiators?

The metal section the fans go on, thought that was called the radiator?, the main thing you place onto the cpu.

Usually it is called a heatsink for air cooling. Also, the cooler usually goes right to left, instead of having fans on the top and bottom. You will probably need to measure the case and fans yourself to see if two fans will fit.

Push-pull with a Hyper 212 in a Storm Enforcer: http://pcpartpicker.com/b/yPH

Thank you :), do you think this or the dark knight II would sit horizontal in this configuration and weather it would make a difference which way it sits as long as its in a push pull?

more commonly called the heatsink, radiators have water flowing through their tubes, heatsinks have air.
