why I do that ? my actual psu is 180mm so I can't put a fan on the bottom

my psu dimensions are (PSU Dimension (cm):19.0 x 15.0 x 8.6) and cant fit a fan in, but remember with a smaller one you still lose 2 inches with all the modular cables connected and if you do put a fan in, the airflow is more than likely to be obstructed. youre better off modding the drive bay with a fan blowing between the two cards.

With the structure of the Z11 and its PCI lane position, if you want to place a fan blowing between the two cards you will be obstructed by the junction of the upper 5.25 bay and yhe lower hdd cage .... instead if you made a good sleeving ,even with lot of PSU connections on place ,the fan will be 90% of its airflow cone free of obstructions

think outside the box, see the plastic bracket for the hdd quick release that comes off easily (2 screws) all motherboards have the same lane spacing to fit cases (universal). and ive had a 120 fan inside the hdd bay blowing horizontally into the bottom of my card, this will blow between the two graphics cards, ive tried it on one and ive seen it done on crossfire.

i recently changed it and put a small one outside, till i get more (matching) fans and go crossfire. also a fan at the bottom will only provide air to the bottom card. look at my pics and see.

Oh! man... I did not think at it !!
really a great idea, thanks for sharing and point my attention at it!
I have a question, what have you did with the two fan placed inside of the side panels fan intakes?
Have you leave it? I read on most reviews that they're almost irrelevant for an effective cooling effect....

Theyr're not at all useful, but I let them aspiring the air from the exterior, like this I have the front fan intake and the two on the sides intake too, now I find this useful to remove HDD bays to put one more fan, but I have two HDDs and I still use even the second, I can't change to one SSD only, anyway, I will put some more pictures soon!

the ones on the side panels lol i flipped them around to blow cold air inside. whats the point of having air coming in through the 120mm front fan and exhaled out by two smaller fans??


also you have to think about positive/negative air pressure. with more fans blowing in (in a certain direction) you have less dust build up and better heat loss.
