how did you guys setup your airflow?

like 1 top exhaust, 1 top intake

2 side intake, 1 front intake

and 1 back exhaust?

Mine is all kinda crap because the screws aren't long enough to turn the 200mm fan around.. but i have a side 200mm intake 2 120mm side exhaust and rear intake. then I have 2 120mm fans on my rs240 rad pulling air in. but it's hot air..

This seems completely backwards.... Top/rear Exhaust, front/side intake... Hot air rises pull in though the bottem, and let the air naturally go out though the top... Have you tried switching things around to see if you get better temps?

I know hot air rises. but the hot air was getting stuck in my case since the rad was at the top.. So I though flip the rad fans that are at the top to intake and then leave the rear fan intake and set the 2 small fans to exhaust, i wanted the large side fan to be exhaust. but the temps really havent changed any.. It's water cooling so I though they would be a lot better but they aren't.. they are around 75-80C without the window open.

It could also be that you have too much air in the case causing the air current to flow where itks not supposed to....have you tried flipping all the top and rear fans as an exhaust to help pull out hot air from your cpu? And take out the 200mm side fan and just leave the front fan and the 2 side 120s as your only intakes? How about mounting a fan on your hard drive bay pointing towards your gpu?

The 2 on my rad were exhaust when i installed them.. cpu temps are the only problem so i thought why not have the rad pull in cooler air?

ok for normal ppl with air coolers do you want more air coming into your case or more air flow out of your case?

Debatable question... I prefer to have higher Intake then exhaust, causing a little bit of air to be forced out of every small hole in the case, this seems to cut down on dust inside the case because you can filter all the intake points... If you have higher exhaust, air will be sucked in though the drive bays and other holes..

Here is a picture for anyone wondering about the clearance of the side panel and a Corsair H70. No there is no way of fitting a side 200mm fan. Sorry for the dark picture my camera doesn't have a flash.
