In a perfect world where cool air would hang out above your case instead of warm air that is exhausted from your case, I would agree with you. But the fact is that heat rises, so you're just going to be sucking in warm air exhausting out your rear fan right back into your case through the top fans. It will pretty much just create a loop of sucking in the same air from the exhaust fan over and over again.

The temperature differences will most likely be negligible between the ways you could set it up. I'd go with whichever setup is easier to clean which is either pulling in or pulling out.

Yeah, I'd agree with this. Regardless of how you do it, the temps won't change that much. I probably made more of a big deal of having the top fans as intake than I should of. I don't think it will be cooler than the other way, but overall probably won't make much of a difference either way.

And another reason I love the H440: only one easy access dust filter to clean for all three of your intake fans. My Phantom 630 had 3 separate filters, and one required to take a fan totally off of the side panel to in order to access it.

Thanks for the replies - I will try it out both ways to see what kind of effect I get. Now just waiting for my proc, GPU, and SSD! Looking forward to posting some pics and enjoying the new rig.

Edit: You can also buy sleeved cables, that's what I opted for.

Provided you've got some distance (6 inches) between the exhaust port on the back and a wall, you won't be recirculating like that. With the gpus that dump heat in the case, you'll have a lot warmer air floating around inside the case.

Try it both ways and measure smile.gif

Look forward to the pics!

As far as the h105, leave exhaust, I may suggest just like frozen to flip the rear fan and see whats best. or you could mod the panels thumb.gif

So now (pre)ordered with another retailer, it sais "Confirmed" with estimated deliver March 8, wonder if that holds, crossing fingers, i want my case... all the nice stuff going into it is stacking up wink.gif

Hope you get it soon!

Ha sgtgates I was just thumbing through your posts....! Hey so I picked up some 12v > 7v cables to possibly undervolt the stock 120mm fans. Earlier in the thread you mentioned this might not be the best idea based on the CFM/H20 ratings of those NZXT fans. So, I started reading up a bit and was jussssst about to hit "order" on some AF120s and a AF140 -but- the ratings seem to be about the same even the dBA. Perhaps I should be looking at the SF120 but from what i've read that wouldn't be the correct application for them.

Maybe I should just leave my stock fans alone - i admit i haven't heard them yet, but I have read that others (in other forums) have undervolted them successfully. I'm going to be shooting for a somewhat conservative 4.2 Ghz on my 4770k, FWIW.
