Thanks in advance
With 3x 140mm intakes and 2x 140mm on radiator as exhaust, and back exhaust fan I'm betting air is leaking ieaking in, not out .. meaning dust is getting in. I would unplug the back exhaust.
There are far so many acronyms flying around I can't keep up. 'dc2' means nothing to me .. and I'm not wasting my time trying to figure out what you didn't take a extra 2 seconds to give the full name of.
It seems you have at least a little knowledge of airflow. If you know my name you know I'm the 'airflow rev' .. always preaching about it.
Best way to find out how well your system is flowing air is not by number of fans, but by monitoring the air temp going into components is compared to room .. especially under heavy sustained load. "Ways to Better Cooling' link in my sig, 2nd post is simple low cost way to do this. 5th post is basic guide to case airflow. If I had a nickel for every time I've typed that ...
