The front brackets are screwed right into the metal frame of the case so it shouldn't go anywhere. I am going to get 4 more screws though to make sure it is in there good only $1.08 but haven't had time to stop to the hardware store. I was originally only going to have one fan shroud but had an idea to move it to the front which gave me the room for two shrouds so didn't have enough of the longer screws.

I have it venting out the front cause when I had it going the opposite it made my GPU fans scream all the time. Either way it never made even a 1 C difference at idle or load.

Yeah I saw yours I like it allot... because it looks more *real placement.. compared to Ties. I'm kinda thinking to place it there again as well on the new case... since having it the regular (back case placement) is currently not letting me place an extra 120mm case fan to face the CPU area... that extra 120mm fan will lower my temp around -2c

Plus it will lower more as well... because since i won't have the Rad on the back of the Case.. I can add another 120mm fan in the back Pulling cold air in.
Here is an Example to the new idea for my CM590 case:


Not sure if this is any good ventilation positioning.. any suggestions for change?
I stopped using the DVD Drive.. so I'll use the extra space to mount 3 x 120mm fans on the front

I always thought the top fans should be exhausting myself since hot air rises and depends on the case I at least have my side fan exhausting too.

Others should have more insight on the matter than I do though.

Fans on the top and on the rear of the case should be exhausting to create a path of air from the front to the back and exhaust hot rising air from any of the components.

Agreed.

Current series of GPUs are the main culprit of case heat these days, even if they have their own vent system. This hot air needs a way to get out other than through your H50 rad

Well... case fan... from Side panel... the one on the GPU I can set it as Exhaust or maybe both as Exhaust pfff no clue...

also its not only the RAD as exhaust there will be another 120mm below the Rad as exhaust as well.... not sure of where the hard drives are(which has another 120mm).. would that be *Pull cold or Exhaust ?

Let me see what you all think about my setup then. I have a 120mm on top exhausting, 120mm in back exhausting, 220mm side fan exhausting, 120mm front connected to my HDD bay at the bottom of the front of my case blowing into case and the H50 above HDD cage exhausting out the front.

Should the side 220mm fan be blowing into the case?

Side fans are generally good as intake as they cool the components they are directed at and supply cooler air into the system. The hard drives you are referring too (I think) are below the 5.25 bay. Again, generally, its accepted practice to have an intake fan in front on them to cool them.

Side fan = intake (as reasoned above).

H50= intake or exhaust is up to you. Whatever you find gives you the best temps.

Personally, I have my H50 in the 5.25 bay as an intake because its now winter here. My top 120mm and rear 120mm are all exhaust. My side 120mm, bottom 120mm and front HD 120mm are intake.
