The Define C has the mesh filter like the Define S. The Meshify C has a piece of thick foam as a filter which doesn't really allow for good airflow

I doubt it.

The horizontal Pump/Res mount. That wouldn't be difficult would it? I'm thinking that's the route i'm going to go. Been back and forth on cases but keep coming back to the meshify C. 120x5 with a 3700x and 5700XT plus dark tempered glass plus RGB lighting on fans/blocks/memory should look extremely good. Will definitely take some more skill on my part for bends this time around, but i love that build.

Hello,

Quick question relating to above discussion regarding airflow. I currently have 2 x Corsair Air Series AF140-LED 140mm Quiet Edition High Airflow as front panel intakes. Just wondering if these are okay to keep running, or if there are alternatives which move more air without increasing noise much more. I don't want a loud system, but at the same it's very quiet at the moment and could be a bit more noisy if needs be.

I finally completed my transition from 800d to Meshify C. Obiviously not the neatest, but it works:

Think i can mount a horizontal res with a vertical GPU mount like this guy has done? I don't see why i couldn't. It would be crammed but 120x5 with a vertical GPU mount and say 150mm res with the D5 or DDC in the bottom. Would be a hell of a build.

I've always stuck with high pressure fans for intake because they have to suck air in from the outside though dust filters, various drives etc. Airflow fans move a lot of air if they are unrestricted (such as an exhaust) but for intake fans I'd never use them. Grab yourself some Silent Wings 3 or Noctua NF-A14's. Much more quiet, moves much more air through tight spaces.

Any recommendation on specific models. Seem to be plenty of choices within that same model, I guess quietest/slowest to loudest/noisiest:

Silent Wings 3: BL040, BL047, BL065, BL067, BL069, BL071
Noctua NF-A14: NF-A14, NF-A14 iPPC-2000, NF-A14 Chromax

Looking for something that moves a bit more air, but without being too loud.

They make iPPC-3000s too

Go for the iPPC 2000/3000 or the Silent Wings 3.

Phanteks PH-F140 MP are worth a look too.

Cheers, will probably go Silent Wings 3 BL071. Fastest of that range at 1600rpm, but slower/quieter than the iPPC 2000 Noctua AF-14. Should be a good "in between"... and cheaper.
