Advice on my fan setup

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a NZXT Phantom 410 case and a H100i cooler. I was wondering if the way I have my fans is optimal or whether I should change it:

Front - 2 x Corsair AF120 Quiet Edition - Intake
Side - 1 x Corsair AF140 Quiet Edition - Intake
Top (H100i Fans) - 2 x Corsair SP120 Quiet Edition - Exhaust (The way the Phantom 410 is I have the fans on the inside of the case and the rad is hidden under the top removable cover on the outside)
Rear - 1 x Corsair AF120 Quiet Edition - Exhaust

Is this optimal or not? My 2500K is overclocked to 4.5GHz @ 1.240V and under full load my temps get to around 64-65 after a few hours or Prime95 (Think I didn't apply the thermal paste correctly but I will re-do that soon). My PC is on a carpet but I have Demciflex filters on the intakes.

I'm not sure about the application method for MX-4 on my H100i.
