Have u seen the gigabyte extreme something. Zotac amp extreme might be a little too big.
I thought about just using my ty143 as intake but have it ramp up on gpu temps.
Already ordered windowed version ofc (wonder how many didn't!)! I was thinking of the non extreme zotac that is 300mm. Maybe I could tape a fan on the outside but that would be too ghetto for such a nice case, or just shave off a few mm on the plastic on the GPU and fan

I suspect you'd be fine though, as there is a ton of air movement thru the case even if you only use 3 of the 4 120 mm spots.
Well this is reassuring. I'm no aerodynamics scientist but I figured maybe all the air would just go over the CPU then out the back and leaving the graphics card in its own hot pocket, but if I have 2 intakes on top (1 in front) maybe they would create enough positive pressure to make the air go everywhere or something? or maybe the fans on the GPU itself does a good enough job to push its hot air into the case so it gets caught in the "current".
