Also, do you happen to have any pictures of your system? I've always been curious to see how AIO coolers look inside the S3/S5/S8 cases.
Don't worry about it x3 I like listening to different ideas. I'm aware that the front rad is heating the intake air but hypothetically, if I were to mount it to the top, say in an exhaust config, I doubt that would have any effect on the thermal performance outside margin of error.
That said, though, I should test that hypothesis and see what the difference is in reality because that's what really matters.
I've also considered using the rear as an intake along with the two fronts and exhausting it all out the top. That way, the cpu rad, and gpu rad will have fresh, cool air that will travel up through the middle of the system, gathering heat and out the top. This would also reduce the amount of dust accumulation from the top vent.
Everything considered, though, this is an ongoing build and depending on how I feel, anything could change xD
It's all part of the fun of being a pc enthusiast.
Oh, here are some pictures of the current configuration with the H110i gt cooling my CPU
Though these are little outdated. I've since moved the orientation of the rad so that the tubing is running from the bottom of the case up to the block instead of top down. I'll have to take more pictures but this is what I've got right now.
