The pdf shows a 2 way splitter aswell as a 3 way,this gives you enough connectors for 6 fans

I agree push and pull is not worth the trouble BUT Im still confused by the reply from EK below As I still cannot see how you connect 6 fans with only a three fan splitter that is supplied in the push and pull kit,

Hello,

Thank you for contacting us! For a Push-Pull Configuration, we do now offer an upgrade for the Predator 360 (https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-xlc-predator-360-push-pull-add-on). This comes with 3 additional Vardar fans and another 3-fan splitter, allowing you to achieve 6 fans on the Predator fan header.

If you already have 3 additional fans, then all you would need to do is purchase a 3-fan splitter (https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-cable-y-splitter-3-fan-pwm-10cm) so that you can attach the 3 fans to the fan header.

If you have any further questions, just let me know!

Regards,

I understand that, but how can ek say it's an upgrade kit if it does not serve to add the extra three fans a tad misleading :)

Under the hot sun.
You do not need 6 fans with the Predator.
I have mine on pull configuration at the top of the case, and only running 100% fan speed when benching. All the other time 70-80% is more than enough to cool a 4930K @ 4.5 (previously 4820K @4.8) and a R9 Nano (pre-filled block) or now the GTX 1080. (pre-filled block).

To give you an example good the cooling is with the 3 fans, 41C @ 70% speed, while playing games with the 1080 @ 2164 core. Or 44C while benching at 100% fan speed.
