Stock Air Cooling is sub-par.

To improve it, add 2 x 120 (or 140mm) fans to the window (you'll have to mod for this.)

And add one of these to the front of the case:
Scythe Kama Bay Plus
Lian-Li 4 HDD Bay Rack + 120mm fan
Lian-Li 5.25" 120mm fan cage
Thermaltake iCage

it also didnt come with 3 top fans, so i have to add 2 more (grabbed one from another case i had and its working well) if i remove/replace the stock fans would that help, also i dont really want to add any to the window but then again doesnt seem like i can cool my GPU's sufficiently any other way.

looking to put my noctua nh-d14 w/ 2 Gt's in this case but i would like to improve its airflow. the ideas i have seen so far are:

3 fans exhausting out the top
switch the rear exhaust into an intake position
add a scythe kama bay air fan
add another fan for bottom air intake (along with the stock one)

these are the fans i would like to add, simple because of the black color with blue led's
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835103060


any other ideas guys? any help definitely is appreciated

+rep to all who shoot ideas =]

Hey that is a good question i was asking myself and someone on the form suggested something to me that i simply didn't think of.

Adding 3 120mm fans up top is fine, but you still have an air leak right beside them, that grill at the top back of the case. I filled mine with 2 80mm Gelid Gamer Fans and noticed a 2-3 degree drop on my H-50 (note my H-50 is an intake fan, tried as exhaust but temps were higher).

Pic below, hope this helps.
