I see you have the fans mounted in a puller configuration. I am assuming this is due to a lack of length on your coolant hoses.
If you use a Kraken X61, there is enough length to get the fans positioned as pushers. Then, if you buy a 140mm to 120mm adapter and re move some material from the fan casing, you can mount 1 120mm puller on the bottom position in front of the GPUs.
While the extra airflow is nice for the GPUs, I have two exhaust fans and actually did this to assure good positive pressure on the air intake side. This helps assure all air is entering the system through the filter and prevents the accumulation of dust inside the case.
yer i hid the wiring as much as i could to give it the 'empty' look haha
i got enough length on hoses, i just came to this conclusion after watching a few linus vids(my only form of knowledge lol) as he said there's zero difference in push/pull configs, also since this pic i've switched to white ringed sp120 quiet edition fans on the rad too so looks bit nicer
also my h105 rad is 38mm thick and as u can imagine theres literally no room between the case and cable hider, the cable plate is actually hard up against the top fan holding it all pretty firm
i've had thoughts on doing it like your style too and will see...i def got plenty of spare corsair fans to play with haha
im also gonna be doing a 'summer version' mod to the front panel of case where im gonna mount 2 or 3 120mm fans after unscrewing the front white metal piece, it can get pretty hot here in melb in summer
as far as noise goes system is whisper quiet and temps are around 18-20deg idle and 46-48deg full load, which im happy with...but u mentioned dust...wouldnt the front dust panel catch most if not all the dust?
