This of course just my own opinion based on my own experiences with my case, so no problem if you think this won't work for you @ahnafakeef. But here's what I would personally do:



I'd use the bottom 3 bays to mount the 120mm fan or 140mm (using an adapter and/or 140mm that has 120mm holes). Keep the top one for your DVD drive or w/e you want.



I would remove the top fan completely. You have to keep in mind, air wants to go straight. I know it's standard theory to want the "hot" air to go up, but it will do it naturally anyway and in a PC case like this, I doubt ambient air even has time to sit around like that. If it is sitting around and then traveling up then you're doing something wrong (general statement). I'm very partial to a "wind tunnel" approach. I favor straight air paths with the least resistance. Get the cooler air in, warmer air out as fast as possible, keep it flowing, avoid fan competition and turbulence. I feel like when people put fans in every possible area it just makes the air confused and fighting the path it wants to go & each fan is wrestling with each other. Positive vs Negative Pressure isn't the issue, it's all the fans fighting each other that would mess up cooling efficiency. Only time I think top mounted is awesome & worthwhile is if you are using something like the H100 cooler and in cases like the 900D (wicked / badass case).

Stuff to try:

A.. Put in your fan in the 5.25 slot using this: http://www.mountainmods.com/mountain-mods-acrylic-triple-bay-120mm-fan-mount-p-405.html
Here's a 140mm adapter: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/11897/duc-51/BGears_140mm_to_120mm_Slim_Profile_Fan_Adapter_-_Black.html?tl=g47c121#blank
or http://www.frozencpu.com/products/9003/duc-48/Bitspower_Low_Profile_140mm_To_120mm_Fan_Adapter_-_Clear_BP-FA140120-CL.html?tl=g47c121s262#blank

B: Cover the front with one of these: http://www.frozencpu.com/cat/l3/g47/c223/s548/list/p1/Fan_Accessories-Fan_Filters-120mm_Fan_Filters-Page1.html

C. Optionally

Use a small fan duct like this to aim the air towards the CPU Fan, since in your case, even on the bottom slots, it sits a bit higher. I really like this duct because it's pretty small and you can easily position it to aim directly into the intake CPU fan. It's a smaller duct so I'll link an adapter. Other ducts would just be bulky and funky looking.

or try the Beam Air
http://www.coolerguys.com/nexbafa.html


D. Put thin filters at the top. Seems counter intuitive but in my case I'm trying to make that wind tunnel, my fans want to suck air into from where ever it can, and since the top is fairly open, it's sucking in air from outside, but I want it focusing on pulling in air from the front bay fan. So I covered my top area up with thin filter to just make it more preferential for the 5.25 bay fan air to go through, since that air is being less resistant. Plus it'll help keep dust out (dunno if that case already has a dust filter).
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/16607/ffi-110/120mm_Foam_Fan_Dust_Filter_325mm_Thick.html?tl=g47c223s548


E. Buy a gasket for your intake CPU fan since it helps eliminate the dead space in the middle that the fan motors create. So more of the heatsink is getting air:
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/18046/ex-rad-469/Phobya_120mm_Radiator_Gasket_-_10mm_38335.html


G. You'll probably need longer screws for all this. =/




Side note, I'm moving all my stuff from my Gamma case to my 230T tomorrow. Wish me luck in not messing up any of my hardware! =P

Thank you for the explanatory reply! smile.gif

I don't use a DVD drive so using the bays for a fan won't be a problem. But to what do I attach the 120mm fan? There doesn't seem to be anything that I can attach it to. And the 120mm fan mount is not available to me locally and foreign purchases are currently inaccessible to me.

I'm going to remove both of the stock 200mm fans anyways, since I have been told that they just make noise and don't move enough air. I want to put two 120mm fans in place of the front 200mm fan, but again, there's nothing there to attach them to.

I'm in support of your straight air paths method - intake everything from the front and exhaust everything from the back. That being said, the 120mm fan that will be placed using the three bays can direct air to the CPU cooler and the CPU cooler can direct that air to the back exhaust fan for the hot air to exit. Again, the two 120mm fans which will replace the 200mm fans can direct air to the GPU which will exhaust through the back since its a blower type cooler. There will be no fan on top of the case. Does that sound okay to you?

I apologize for the lengthy post. Thank you very much for your help! smile.gif

Sorry, here's a random thought I had right now for my case. Tell me what you guys think. How about adding a 60mm fan or smaller in the highlighted area? I've never actually see anyone do that.




I really like the look of this Fractal fan, maybe I can paint the blade orange. ;D
I'm not positive about how to mount it, but I'm sure a screw will go through the mesh and I'd add a rubber washer or something.

@ahnafakeef

Damn, hmmm, I'm not sure how to mount the 120mm fan without using that acrylic mounting piece I linked you since you have to screw it somehow into the HDD bay. You can use something like I'm linking below, but it's not as nice looking or elegant. =/ Maybe you can make your own?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/EverCool-EC-HK-3F-BK-Hard-Disk-Drive-5-25-inch-Bay-3-Fan-Case-HDD-Cooler-Black-/400534677688?pt=US_Hard_Drive_Cooling&hash=item5d41ba28b8

or this (but then you have the logo and it's more expensive but easier to find on Ebay)
http://www.kustompcs.co.uk/acatalog/1410.jpg

I fully agree on putting in two 120mm instead. I think it'll look much more satisfying too! thumb.gif
That's tough about mounting those as well. If you can use power tools do you think you can make your own mount? Just a rectangle out of whatever sheet metal you can find that will line up with that 200m mount holes. Then use longer screws for the 4 main holes (200mm mount holes), and smaller screws for the 4 other holes. Hope that doesn't sound confusing. You can use washers to make it all flush (flat) when mounting.

Something like this (excuse how bland and non-scale it is)
