Is this good airflow for my new build?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Good afternoon everyone,

just was curious, as I am learning more and more every day how all this stuff works if this is good for my new build that I am working on. I am waiting on the processor, and graphics card and then its finishing the assembly but this is what I plan on doing for cooling/fan set up. Any and all critique/insight is welcome.



Thank you in advance!

Can't really give a complete airflow because we don't know what your GPU is but:

2 things wrong with that airflow:
*4x fans in and 1x out means low total airflow.. but lots of airblow.
*H100 intake is preheating your case and everything in it.

I would make the front exhaust and everything else intake.
*This means 3x intake and 2x exhaust

I suggest you read some threads like ehume's "How to decide on a case for air cooling" to help you understand how it all works.

If it's the Arc Midi R2 you're better off with H110 in top exhaust with push , the 2 fans in front as intake, one bottom intake

see the picture from Fractal Design:

or if you go doyll's route, then probably 3 top intakes, back intake, bottom exhaust, 2x front exhaust H110
