Moutain Mod Case Fan Set Up (Assension)

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I am thinking about changing from the thermal-take level 10 GT to a Custom case from Mountain Mods, for my next build.


The main reason I like this case is the large amount of 5.25" bays, in addition to the massive customization capabilities.
Pictured below:
621

I will be water cooling eventually but not at first (Money issues, the lack there of that is), my question is what is the best set up for intake/exhaust fans for proper air pressure and what not. This will be my first custom case so this is just another area I am new in.

The fans will include 3x120s and 1x140 in the back and 6x120s in the front. I want at least one intake radiator 3x120 (I think). As well as 3x120 in the back as an exhaust. My thought is double fanning the radiators, Where I am not sure what to do as the fans in front and in back are uneven 6 v 4, is should all 6 in front be intake, or should some be exhaust?

You must be old school to like big cases. Sort of like the lian li dual bays on wheels.

If you like it, I'd say go for it but see if you can get it hard anodized red or another color. It would be beastly.
