Edit: Noticed tho it might create a hot spot around your GPU's tho.

nope

do FRONT INtakes , TOP INtakes , REAR Exhaust 140mm (at higher speed as the intakes) , BOTTOM INtake (optional) and also optional: reverse the PSU so it takes air from inside the case
yes, the inside of the case will run a bit hotter, but no worse as if you were using traditional "air" heatsinks


note: the reason for using 120 mm fans on rads is that there is a much better selection of GOOD 120 mm fans for rads compared to 140mm fans

Front intakes would only throw tons of heat directly into the case. That's fine but two GPU's worth of heat is a lot of heat. With the way you're telling him, there is essentially no escape for the heat. You're basically suggesting him to build a hot box. I suggest rear fan intake (with radiator to CPU), entire top three fans on exhaust, bottom fan intake, and both front fans intake (with radiator). Then the fans would be pushing the outside cool air through all the radiators to keep them cool. Once the heat is inside the case you then have to figure out a way to get rid of it. I would set the bottom fan to intake, and then the top three fans to exhaust (heat rises) so it is effectively funneling the heat up and out of the case. The PSU I would mount upside down so it takes in air from outside the case, then shoots it right back out the back. It not only will keep the PSU cooler so it lasts longer. Tho I strongly suggest it because most power supply's have plain sheet metal backing (no holes cut out for airflow). This means if either of his GPU or CPU liquid loops fail at the block. There is a 99% less chance of it leaking directly down and into the power supply. If that happens with the machine on, things will get ugly (e.g. the PSU could potentially fry every component in the machine). I personally myself rather it run cooler, and be safer. Tho that's just my own preference and how my machine is setup.

Have you bought the CLC yet? You can go with 140mm version, as you can use lower speed fans to get same effect from 120mm versions.
Which fans have you looked at?

I prefer this way as it works real well before. You have a strong intake to feed cool air into the rads.

XL R2 is a full tower case W x H x D ( 232mm x 559mm x 560 mm )

Define R4 a mid tower W x H x D ( 232mm x 464mm x 523mm )

Yeah, already got three Antec 620's.
Think I'll go with Scythe Gentle Typhoon 1450rpm.

Thought of putting these between the case and fan to reduce whiny noises....

Wont reduce the whine, I have 7mm gaskets on my fans. it was just to move away from the grills. The fans you uses will determine the sound it will make.

I am worried I will be created a negative airflow with this configuration, thoughts?

I would not go with a negative airflow configuration.
Just get a good 140mm dustfilter like the ines from Silverstone and flip the fan in the back.
It should give you better Temps on your h100 (one or two degree), but primarily a positive preassure.

If your 140mm fan doesn´t fit next to your AX760, just try a 120. I had one running one in my rig (because my PSU ist to long) for nine month or so and it works quiet well.
And if your going for esthetics:
(I think it works out well enough)

Hi guys, sorry guys for this unresearched post, but I'm about at my wits end as far as researching and I am just so close to starting my build, but I forgot to research fans for my case. I'm not sure how long it would take me to find the info I need from this thread, so I thought I would go ahead and ask real quick.

So I was looking to see if I could get some suggestions and input on what I should do about my XL R2 build, as far as fans go. Maybe some fans I could pick up quick from my local Microcenter,or just from Amazon or Newegg.

I do not plan to water cool anything from the getgo. So only air.

This will be my first ever build. I'm pretty scared actually. I have all the parts at my house ready to go accept for a gpu, and case fans. I'm not sure if it would be a good idea to start building without having put case fans in yet. I haven't opened the box for the XL R2 yet, so I'm not sure what kind of fans it comes with or if I should replace them.

Also, if anybody knows of some good videos to help me put this together, that would be great as well.

Thanks
