Help me in my Antec DF-30 Please!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Here is my case Antec DF-30

I would like to optimize THE AIRFLOW inside the case. My priority is the GPU.
Here is the list of my fans

STOCK: (all set to HIGH) specs based on manual
a. EXHAUST top: 140mm TwoCool Fan
1200 RPM, 58.9 CFM, 0.80 mm-H20, 26.0 dBA
b. INTAKE front: Two(2) 120mm Blue LED Fans
2000 RPM, 66.6 CFM, 2.55 mm-H20, 34.5 dBA
c. EXHAUST rear: 120mm TwoCool Fan
1500 RPM, 51.2 CFM, 1.21 mm-H20, 27.9 dBA

AFTERMARKET:
a. EXHAUST rear (BELOW GPU): DEEPCOOL XFan 80mm
1800 RPM, 21.8 CFM, 20 dBA
Could you help me, where to place the three fans below to optimize the airflow? Please indicate whether it's exhaust/intake.
- Corsair H50 120mm Fan 7-Blade
1700 RPM, 59.1 CFM, 3.57 mm-H20, 29.8 dBA
- CoolerMaster Blue LED Silent 120mm Fan 9-Blade
2000 RPM, 90.0 CFM, 3.04 mm-H20, 19 dBA
- Silverstone FM-121 120mm Fan 9-Blade
2400 RPM, 110 CFM, 3.26 mm-H20, 39.5 dBA

I have given you four(4) possible places where there is space.
1. Side Panel 2. Front of Radiator 3. Front of GPU 4. Behind DVD Burner

Thanks!

Here is the diagram of my case,

I run the same case.
140mm top is blowing in
both front 120's blowing in
120mm side fan blowing in right on the gpu's
2 fans on my radiator blowing out.
with the fan profile I run gpu's stay in the 50's under full load, cpu is the same.
(I have 90 cfm fans on the rad)
