Also I was thinking I'd order 2 more Helix 120mm PWM fans to go push pull but them all being PWM allowing me to tweak the noise keeping it quieter.
Looking at Martin's setup , he had it mounted in the bottom adn I didn't get good info for the TTL review or Linus for the reasons others already mentions , so I'm wondering it the Helix 120mm PWMs are worth getting adding or would I need something better to make doing push pull worthwhile? I'm willing to spend on better fans if they will perform better, I just didn't want to double up on the helix ones if I'd end up getting 4 of another brand.
Likely I'd be replacing all the Fractal Design 140mm's too for the 2 front and 1 rear to some pwm model but I have no clue which models to consider and the Arc Midi I have needs a square frame fan in the front mounts since it uses clips instead of screw mounts like the newest r2 version does.
I already have a 180mm in the side and now I just want to optimize my setup if I'm gonna be adding the H220
Also, were are most of you buying your H220's? I see most vendors are out until the 11th of March but I wasn't sure if ordering from frozencpu is worth it over waiting till Monday if they are also waiting on stock.
I figure I can grab the fans in the mean time but I don't know who is a good option or if one vendor is preferred by the people here for getting a h220.
