I was having the same problem and I have the same cooling setup as you fans and all. I turned the Megahalems 90 degrees (pic below) to exhaust toward the larger 200mm fans which can expel the hot air at a faster rate than the rear 120mm. It also puts the push fan directly in front of the Xigmatek 200mm side fan which constantly feeds it clean fresh air. By doing that, I took it from 37C-39C Idle to 32C-34C Idle. Try it and see if it works for you.

i will defiantly try it because im dying to drop some degrees. but one question would the fans suck hot air from the gpu?

well, I don't know when you bought your case, but I had bought mine not long ago and I went to their RMA department before 30 days was up and said my top LED fan was not lighting up, but one of the fans I bought from them from amazon was acting up and making noise, so I used that to replace the fan thats being weird. Go to their RMA department and just have your proof of purchase.

as for sucking hot air from the GPU, I don't think so because the fan is on the other side and it should push the air out of the case. However there still might be some hot air rising from it. The only problem I would run into is that my hyper212+ might not clear my RAM so I will have to see when my TIM comes tomorrow if it can clear the ram, if so then I will try and rotate it and see what happens, if not, then... I guess I will keep it how I have it, which isn't bad temps, just might be better

the only difference between our cases atm besides the heat sink orientation is that the top front fan on my case is an intake instead of exhaust. try having it as an intake and see how that works for you, and maybe reorienting your heat sink, and having just one fan in your 5.25" bays

Kind of a noob question I know, but I'm a noob so it's ok.

I added a 200mm and was thinking about adding another but I feel that it would cancel out another one somewhere else.... which fans do you guys have mounted in your NZXT?
post #3426 of 15187
I have:
front sickleflow fan
front nzxt fan (from side of case) in the 5.25" bays
top front nzxt 200mm fan intake
top back nzxt 200mm fan exhaust
2x 120mm sickleflow side fans
200mm nzxt side fan
back 120mm sickleflow fan

with said fans, idles at 29 24 27 26 for my 4 cores
under load prime95 for 2 hours maxed out at 62 60 57 59
this is all with my fans running on the lowest speeds on the fan controller. I just ran prime95 and went to class to see my temps

if you want pictures go 3 pages back or click here, i posted my just recently

I bet you would not notice a difference in heat at idle with the fans at lowest setting or completely off... and why do you not want it as an option? Most decent fan controllers allow you to turn the fans completely off. It saves the life of fans and allows for essentially silent idle temps when not doing heavy computing.

I have 2 KAZE 3000 fans in this case... they are loud (think vacuum cleaner) but as a trade off they move insane ammounts of air, turning them completely off during light computing makes sense, and with my previous case and 5.25" bay fan controller I could turn them off.

Looks like I will just have to make a 4 pin molex override switch so that I can turn the fans off... too bad I cant do it 1 fan at a time this way though
