My H220 fans are also intake pushing through the rad, I also had them in a pull config and didn't see any temp difference.

Awesome! I'm asking about exhaust because I think it will be the only one I will have because I'll be doing the H220s in pull too.

So far I have five intake fans and two exhaust fans.

Intakes:bTwo in the front, two on the top RAD and one on the bottom.

Exchaust: The one in the back and the PSU.

How is this for airflow? I want to put the PSU to push for airflow to the Graphics, but then there's the dust problem and leaves just the back for exhaust.

What does everyone think? I'll have three Fractal R2 fans, two stock Swiftech 220 fans and the big man, the Noctua A15-PWM.

Wow you paid massively for that Noctua...
it's only $20 over on Amazon for the NF-A14 or NF-A15 PWM. The new higher RPM NF-A14 PWM (1500 max RPM and PWM instead of voltage unlike the NF-A14 FLX with 1200RPM max) is also $24 (http://www.amazon.com/Noctua-NF-A14-PWM-140x140x25mm-1200rpm/dp/B00CP6QLY6).

The NF-A15 is only meant for Tower air coolers since it uses 120mm holes and is 150mm wide (or tall, if you rotate it)

A more direct replacement would have been one of their 140mm square fans but if the area around that fan mount will let you fit it, you'll be fine.

Aww, so you guys are saying I should return it and get NF-A14 PWM? I am not using a tower heatsink after all. Does Newegg pay for return shipping?

What do you guys suggest about my fan placement assuming I get the Noctua replaced?

This is my case exactly how it is now:

I will be adding the Swiftech 240 RAD to the top with Fans in pull and an HX750 on the bottom.

Is there something wrong with the stock case fans that you want to replace them?
