I was thinking of adding a bottom fan as exhaust... or would it be better to use it as a input fan

eBay, maybe other PC stores but eBay would be quickest in my head.

I use it as intake and my temps are great but you can try both ways if you want. thumb.gif

was just a little worried about to much dust.... I might make a filter for it. my current fan config is

2x 120mm top
1x 140mm front
1x120 mm rear
=============

it will be in the next day or so

2x120mm top
1x 140mm front
The rear might go either way as i am installing a H80 there (if it fits)
1x 120mm bottom.

guttered that my corsair power-supply cant use the hole thats there for cooling as its fan pushes air out of the top of the psu straight up to the gpu fan mad.gif I might have to install a plate to stop that but at the same time I don't want the psu to get to hot.

... can you upload some pictures of the inside?

You can use filters if you want, if you feel that your room is dusty or if you don't clean out your tower annually. I like the idea of putting the fan filter on the outside/bottom of the case, seems to work better.

If you are looking for better temps, you might want to look at removing the middle hard drive bay and adding 2-120mm Static Pressure fans in the front. xD Seems like a popular choice around these parts. biggrin.gif

So your PSU fan does not intake air and exhaust it out its back? what brand and model? Either way we can get you some decent airflow going on so you can help the temps and not attract dust.
A rule of thumb you might want to consider is you usually want 1 more intake fan vs exhaust to create positive preasure in the case. If you have more exhaust fans vs intake you'll end up creating a vacuum which will FILL your case with dust unless you some how seal every little nook and cranny.

Heat rises so blowing air out the bottom isn't suggested you'd be blowing out the cool air that is being brought in from the front.
My suggestion would be the following:
2x fans for exhaust
Top 140mm exhaust
Rear Exhaust - if you put the H80 there that'll do

3x fans for intake
2x 120mm front intake
1x 120mm bottom intake

lets say later you add a 2nd 140mm exhaust to the top, I'd suggest adding a 120mm to the side panel to make sure to keep that positive pressure. I tested this theory on my computer vs my wifes and I did setup the fans as I'm suggesting on my build and did not on my wifes and the dust difference is incredible... So now I have to spend a little time and clean her system out and get the fans arranged for positive airflow.

Hey guys, does anyone know if a 38.2mm rad will fit up top (thermaltake water 2.0 extreme)?? I'm having a lot of trouble finding info on compatibility.

38.2 millimeters = 1.5 inches
I did a little online research and found nothing, I took out my tape measure and it's a tough call. Facing the front, the left side edge might make it not fit, if so it would be lucky.
