The bigger a fan is the lower the static pressure is which means it cant push the air it moves hard enough to get through the fiter HDD cages and everything else that is in the way.
The Phanteks 200mm fans has the same problem every other 200mm fan out there has the static pressure is too low which means most of the air flow is wasted and only a fraction of the air it moves actually get inside the case.
Dual 120mm or 140mm fans with higher static pressure moves way more air into the case as they can push it hard enough.
I saw my temps drop as much as 5c after i removed the useless 200mm fans and replaced it with 2x Noctua NF-A14 FLX fans.Edited by shilka - 1/27/16 at 11:54am
