Question CM H500 Radiator With 200mm Fans

I have this case and am going to get a liquid cooler. The radiator will not fit at the top due to ram clearance therefore I must put it at the front. I want to keep the 200mm fans at the front using a push/pull configuration but I’ve read there can be problems like 1 speeds up and burns the motor. It was shown that the push/pull was better from gamers nexus but if it will burn out the motor is it worth it? Or will it even happen?

The H500 is a great air cooling case , you are better off getting something like a dark rock pro 4 or Noctua D15 Chromax black . and you will get a cooler and quiter system without hindering the case ventilation and raise thermals of the gpu and make it more succeptable to throttle

I have the H500p mesh with a dark rock pro 4 and the case is completlety silent under gaming loads

I am thinking of an aio for aesthetic purposes

I understand , I myself have spend a considerable sum of my budget on aesthetics that could have been allocated to better hardware , but I also wanted to go with most possible silent setup that balances with cooling and aesthetics
