I think the closest side fan to GPU should bring the air in.

I need to get to posting mine here eventually...

Of course, after I redo my loop. It's a tad messy.

Like mikupoiss said, it is usually better to have a side fan as an intake, bringing fresh air from outside the case and blowing on top of the gpu(s) and cpu (or between them). wink.gif

It depends on his graphics card and how it exhausts its air. If his card blows its air straight into the case, by theory an exhaust on the side panel should be better. If it pushes it's air outside the case through the rear near the PCI slots, intake would provide air to flow into it. Just depends on the situation from my understanding.

Indeed, that's why I said "usually" wink.gif
It is more complicated than just considering the gpu's exhaust as internal or external. I have two "internal-exhaust" gpu's and after testing and discussing it here on OCN, I found that I get much better temps by using the side fan as an intake + maximizing the top-exhaust. For a complete explanation read this post and the references pointed there. It's great stuff and helped me to make my pc more silent and cool (10C minus on gpu temps, and 5C minus on internal case temps and CPU). Thanks to Windfire applaud.gif

During my own testing I got better GPU temps using the side fan as exhaust. I have a gpu that exhausts hot air into the case.

Here is mine:
NU0nF.jpg

The only cable not behind is the front audio (and the blue cable which is a led I salvage front a old acer case)... Why do the front audio is at the back of the motherboard...
And I use my 4850 XFX box to hide the cable mess of a non-modular grey power supply, it fit perfectly ninja.gif

There is also a 120mm fan in the 5.25 inch bay, and a 120mm on the side panel.

lachen.gifapplaud.gif It actually does look good!

However one can get good cable management with that case.

I'm looking to find rubber grommet (might do them...) in canada and nzxt white extension cable, but no luck...

I was also thinking of painting both side panel white.
