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).
Are those two 80mm fans intake or exhaust? I don't really understand the purpose they'd serve...in my setup, I'm using a megahalems an so my top-rear fan is intake while the other two are exhaust. I feel like adding those two 80mm fans would just screw up the air flow for my setup. What do you think?

hey oyster, so you have the farthest fan to the back (on top) as an intake and the front to as outtake correct? wouldnt it be better for the front one to be intake and the back 2 to be outtake? seems to me it would be, but im no expert at all. just curious to what you have to say about it.

Hey all, considering getting this case and joining your little club...

But, I wouldn't be doing watercooling... I'm seeing some people saying it's not well designed for air...

I only have one video card (8800GT), which I don't even use that often, and I only want to OC to around 3.2 on my i7... I'm more concerned with stability.

Will the cooling (with some extra Noctua fans) be sufficient for those needs?

you'll be fine, right now other than the stock fans i have 1 fan on top as an exhaust fan and an overfclocked i7 to 4.4ghz and it is still relatively cool and and 2 overclocked 5850's (havent tested those out in the case yet) but either way i have 2 5850's that produce lots of heat because they're directly next to one another on this new board i have.

just add 3 top fans and you'll be fine, or even 1 top fan ( like me, for now).

That really only leaves me with one issue about this case...

If I buy it, the ease of putting a SSD in the hot swap bays is going to make me want to buy one...

Air cooling guys, my GPU's are running super warm and there is pretty much no place to put a fan besides on the window and i dont wanna do that.

what about putting another fan right above where the fan is in the same slot as the PSU. thats blowing air into the comp. if i added another fan there as a push pull kind of deal would that help cooling the GPU's. the only other thing i could think of was drilling holes in the cover that covers the hot swap plug ins and putting a fan there.

what do ya'll recommend?
