Which is the main cooling problem you'll run into.

But you're right. If the case is more restrictive than I think, a single exhaust fan would be better.

Either way, you should feed your H100i fresh air from outside the case.

So the best way would be all intake and just the rear as exhaust? What fan should I use the AF 140MM or the SP 120MM?

Yeah, probably. And 140mm fans generally have better noise/airflow ratios if there's space for them.

Also, I love Thermalright's 140mm fans. I'm not sure how they compare to the AF140, but my TY-143 moves and absurd amount of air when I crank it up, and the other slower FDB variants are some of the best 140mms for the money.

I'd have the top as H100i exhaust, rear as exhaust, everything in front as intake.

That way you aren't getting preheated air coming from the GPU.

Thank you! Great info on your post!

Would you use SP 120MM as intake + Rad and a AF 140MM as Exhaust in the rear?
