Everyone I need some opinions and suggestions. Where would you put the fans in my case?

It's a standard 300R with all the stock fan mounting positions, and I've got 2 Arctic cooling F12s, the stock Corsair 140mm and 120mm and a Yate loon 120mm that has to be run at 7v so the air flow from it isn't great. I've currently got an F12 on the back, the corsair 120mm at the top back, yate loon on the side panel at the back and the other F12 and the 140mm on the front. I don't think I'm making the best use of the fans though.

The graphics card cooler is a bit weird too, it takes air in from below and exhausts into the case towards both the front and back.

Edit: I've been playing around with the fans and I've tried to get them in a sort of positive pressure arrangement. I've got the corsair 120mm and the yate loon on the side panel, with the 2 F12s and the 140mm corsair fan mounted on the front using the 2 fan mounts and the 5.25 bays. My temps are looking better already after 5 mins of FC3.

Sharing is caring. Since I no longer own this case and while being asked a million times through PMs and other forums and threads on how I did this, I thought I'd share this info with my fellow 500R owners.

Well guys i got my 360 mounted in the top this weekend and put the 240 in the front. I still need new fans. Running the 212+ fan and 2 blasters 120s at 50% min and 60% max. Got the stock h100 fans on the 500r fan controller set to low on the 240. All fans pulling. I'll put up some pics tomorrow before i put it under my desk. Will get some real temp readings too.
I apologize in advance for the horrible wire management and tube atrocity. I was excited because it wasnt leaking and know im tearing it apart in a month or so to change fittings and block the dc2.

Mine definitely looks the business now smile.gif Homemade grommets FTW wink.gif



All I need now is that new cooler I keep going on about, a couple more fans and it'll be exactly how I want it.
