If it was Minecraft obsidian it would have taken a lot more to scratch it

So I got some new stuff for my case. Nothing as cool as alot of you have lol but here is what I ordered last night and should be shipped out today!

I got 4 of the Gentle typhoon's (2 for push and pull on H70)
I got 2 of the NB's to replace exhaust and intake

I am leaving the hard drive fan stock for the time being. Also I have been looking at airflow diagrams etc for our cases. Do you think it would be in my best interest to turn the rear exhaust fan into an intake since I will have the GT's all exhausting up top?

This is my first build and I kind of wish I would have not mounted my H70 on the top but the lines are to stiff for me to drive to move it back to the exhaust slot without pulling it off. Here is how my case stands as is now.

I have mine set up with all three top fans as intakes and the rear 140mm as the only exhaust. Seems to work pretty well for me.

really? that sounds like it'd have terrible (less than ideal) airflow

You'd be surprised what the differences are between popular notions of airflow and the actual airflow.

As an example, we tested a lot of fans for our new H60 for static pressure - a lot of popular fans from all kinds of brands you see on forums all the time.

We found that some of the ones considered "best" for radiators were actually pretty crappy, no matter how cool they looked. Turns out there's a pretty good reason that most fans in the 1000-2000 RPM range are shaped fairly similarly - drastic changes increase noise and tend to actually decrease airflow and/or static pressure.

So the new fan on the H60 doesn't look that different - but the small changes (different pitch and size on the fan blades, different housing shape, different motor) make a big difference in performance, even if it looks almost the same.

And a lot of the really cool looking cases with tons of fans all over the place end up just adding noise to a system instead of channeling air through the system.

For those concerned with "heat rises", it really doesn't have much effect in something as small as a computer case. Especially with airflow which can easily overcome the natural physics of rising heat. The most important thing is to have cool air blowing over your hottest components, regardless of whether they're upside down, right side up, whatever.
