3: Use the front as intake, exhaust out the back. You don't want to starve the rest of your components of air, even if it is slightly warmed due to passing through the rad.

Good luck to ya, sounds like an excellent setup, although I would strongly suggest getting a modular PSU. They make life so much easier thumb.gif

When you say they need to be on the "Outside" of the case...Do you mean behind fans behind the mesh and 2 more behind the radiator? Or just straight up outside the case for everyone to see? (Never done Push/Pull).

here you go!


Mount them on outside (push fans) between the case front panel and case frame.



Here is how much space is between the radiator and my GTX 670 FTW graphics card which is about 10.5" long front to back.
As you can see there is plenty of space to put the fans (pull fans)

As Ramsey said, use the front as intake and have one exhaust fan. The top 200 fan does not make a great impact on cooling so might as well omit it and be able to see inside your case.

Hope this helps thumb.gif

Based on the reviews i read, seems like the 140s were meant to be mounted inside. I do recall one video review mentioning its clear you would need to mount them inside the frame.

Even inside with a 35mm thick 280 can work. Just as long as you aren't running 690s or 7970x2/7990s thumb.gif

No. A couple of members have tried it. It's pretty much worthless.

Its not going to get any toastier than any other higher end Graphics card.. Should be just fine especially if you have decent fans for intake on the front.
