That's kinda exactly what I was saying..

Corsair recommends that you intake from outside the case. You should still get good airflow over the gpu to keep it cool. If it was me I would try both and see what temps I got on CPU and in HWINFO mobo etc and decide if the trade off was worth it, if there was a trade off at all. But hey I just like to mess around with fan configurations. redface.gif

Same i do like to acheive optimal flow ill be ordering some noctua nf f12's to replace the front fan and fit one below it they are rated well for static pressure and seeing as they need to push through the hard drive cages that can only help as for the rear again it would be another noctua nf f12 and the side 140mm fans would be another variant of noctua with perhaps the stock corsair rad fans being replaced with noctuas static pressure 140mm fans ive heard they are the best but i could be wrong?

I've gone through a fair few fans but I don't have any experience with Noctua's so I can't say, I know a lot of people like them as a brand but others say they are over priced. You're right to look for good static pressure on your intakes though.

From my personal experience Thermalright TY 140's are my favourite 140mm for noise/performance with good static pressure, Silverstone AP141 is great but noisy I've got Fractal design R2's which are quiet but no pressure, ok for a quiet exhaust, had 2 Aerocool shark jet engine 2000rpm, which both developed a nasty grinding noise when I oriented them flat as they would be on your radiator so I would stay away from them personally, and of course Gentle Typhoon AP 15 for 120's if you can find them.

I know there are some proper fan gurus around here you're probably better off asking them and checking the group tests etc. Best of luck thumb.gif
