Wondering if I upgrade all the s340 fans to Noctua, or just get two more FN V2s for the front?
Probably but obviously not many care for the tan and brown color scheme
Here is all white led nzxt fans before I installed the H5 cooler Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)



The fan is touching the edge of the window panel, it just barely moves when sliding the panel on





Best air cooler you can get for the money and size for this case. With no changes but the H5 cooler, I went from peaking out on the Intel burn test at 75*C to 42*C. Rough average idle Temps were in the low 20's before and now I see around 11-13*C. This is all with turbo disabled and running at 4.0ghz.

I have turned up the overclock to 4.4ghz and trying to dial in the vcore and keep losing some cores on prime95. Temps have now creeped into the low 50's
Looks very good. Suggest you remove the top and rear fan. Top fan is good if you have a C-Type (downdraft like C1) or liquid cooling. Same for rear, as you are competing for exhaust with the cooler.

Well if i remove them, I wouldn't have any exhaust fans. Wouldn't the top fan still be beneficial by helping to suck heat from the side of the cooler?

I understand the rear case fan but figured I would see how much room there was. The rear 140mm cooler fan flows 83cfm and the rear case fan flows almost 60cfm.

You do have rear exhaust fighting with cpu heatsink.
If you are not running P/P, you can go with rear fan, but seeing how close they are, pull fan will act as the exhaust.
As for top fan, being so close and heatsink blocking majority area, leaves little room for heat to move around.
Push fan is fighting for air with top.

So from this screenshot, the top fan is pulling air from out in front of the first cooler fan?

Since both cooler and rear case fans are all flowing in the same direction, if there was no rear case fan wouldn't some warm air not make it out the rear fan location since it is not sealed to the rear wall?

Not saying your wrong or anything, just trying to understand the specifics and what the results would be. I do have some understanding of airflow and venturi effects.

Aren't the hive fins sealed to each other to only flow one way so that it's design of smaller openings of the rear compared to the front so there's less turbulence and faster flow?

I am open to trying it out though!

Heat will go out without rear fan, as there is little area open, as taken from heatsink and fan.
The way H5 is designed the sides very little air will pass through, that way airflow can be focus though the fins, with little lose.

Have already done this in my build with Noctua SE2, top and rear fan mainly blocked. Switch to C1 which gave more room around the cooler too allow better exhaust.
The way S340 was designed, is more for liquid cooling with rad in front or downdraft cooler.

Example for front fan blowing air towards the cooler, part of the top fan will just exhaust it instead. As the cooler will heat up, you will still feel the heat escape out from the surrounding area.
You can look at my system on how much more area space is available for airflow.

IN this image you see there is way more top clearance for fans to allow better exhaust. As for the rear, you can either do rear exhaust or pull on heatsink.

Does anyone have a quick and easy link that explains all the differences between Noctua fans? As there are so many models for what looks like the same thing.

Set to 60% (CPU Pull 1100rpm, case fans 800rpm) same game about 58c.
GPU is also under 60c at full load.
With my ambient temps around 18c.

That seems pretty good. I didn't think down drafts where that capable. Is that about the limit of them?

Does anyone know if Noctua:

NF-A14 industrialPPC-2000
Mounting hole spacing
124,5x124,5 mm

and
NF-F12 industrialPPC-2000
Mounting hole spacing
105x105 mm

Will fit in the s340 mounting holes, with the A14s being in the two front, and the F12s being in the back and top?
