Thank you very much, thats what i needed, probably it won't fit unless i put the 120mm fan outside which is not a terrible idea biggrin.gif...

No problem! I do agree with you, though. That's gonna be a tight fit with a 40mm thick radiator. Good luck with your build! smile.gif

Hi guys, I'm new here!

Just bought most of my parts for a new PC build. Had a little experience in tweaking already made systems, but it's my first time building one from scratch.

This is what I have thus far: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/2diLO

I'm looking to see how I should be placing the cooling (Corsair H90) and whether I should be buying additional fans to ensure a optimal temperature and optimal push-pull (not sure if I'm using the term right) (money no object, but I would prefer to use what I have instead of replacing the equipment I just bought!)

I've seen advice on placing the H90 radiator at the back and replacing the exhaust fan for some cases, while others recommend placing it at the top of the case. Also have read on advice to switch the 2 stock 140mm fans 3 120mm fans instead (Is there a way to still make use of the 2 140mm stock fans?)

Thanks in advance for your kind advice!

If you put 3x120mm fans in the front panel, then mount your H90 as a rear exhaust, then you could use two of the stock 140mm fans in the top panel of the case as exhaust.

This would give you three 120mm intakes on the front, two 140mm exhaust fans in the top, and then you will have the H90 exhaust in the rear of the case.

If you want to achieve positive air pressure in the case you will probably want to use some voltage step-down adapters or a fan controller to limit the speed of the two stock 140mm exhaust fans though.


If you think the H90 will do better in the top of the case you can use it and one 140mm exhaust in the top and another 140mm exhaust in the rear. I really don't think you will notice much of a difference either way though. The bigger difference would probably be whether it's used as an intake or an exhaust.

Awesome! Which rad is that in the front? Trying to decide what rad I want to put up front, but I'm worried a 45mm won't fit up front with my 240 up top (have a 290 as my GPU)
