help with meshify s2 set up

https://www.fractal-design.com/home/...fy-s2-black-tg

Hoping someone can help me with a good fan set up.

The case supports:

Front: 3x 120mm/140mm
Rear: 1x 120mm/140mm
top: 3x 120mm /140mm.
Bottom: 2x 120mm/140mm

Going to be using a noctua dh-15 and I already own 2 noctua NF-A14 flx

Was hoping to try out 2-3 ARBG fans just for a change, as I have used a plain set up for a long time.

Price isn't too much of an issue, and I'm fine with not using those 2 noctua fans at all.

Current thoughts was just doing
2x 140mm front
1x140mm back
1x120mm top

I'm not sure how the top fan would go with being above the dh-15 though.

I would go with front and (if you can) bottom intakes. Forget exhaust fans. Those two NF-A14 FLX would make great intakes. Just add another bottom or front intake (could be another Noctua) and you are set.
Rear exhaust fans are generally the noisiest in a PC due to the stamped grills on most cases. With the two FLX and your NH-D15 blowing towards the back you should not need an active exhaust anyway. Just make sure everything in the rear is vented.
Top fans are also mostly useless and just add noise. Closing off the entire top panel is the best you could do really, since that will cut down on noise considerably. Or you can leave the top as is so it serves as a passive air exchange (just make sure you have filters up there).
Since you really want ARGB, and most ARGB fans are no good, just get something like Phanteks Halos for your FLX fans. Hook up the Halos to your motherboard or whatever controller you fancy. The Lux version of the Halos comes with an adapter so they can be connected to standard ARGB headers.

I used to use the top fans exclusively to pull air into the case, now I am using them to exhaust gpu heat. I use 120x38 fans, and a single wasn't enough to vent that heat. I am running a Meshify C, after coming from an R4. With the C, it doesn't take long to see the mobo temp climb when the gpu is running. I now have 3 in 3 out and mobo temp climbs about 2-3c vs about 7-9c running the tops as intakes. I initially set it up with 5 in 1 out, then 4 in 2 out, and for now I have settled on 3/3. I have a pic to show the fans I am using, though one of the tops is pointing down, I have changed it.. I run the big fans at 7v and when I want 110cfm I switch them to 12v otherwise they scream like a TY-143 at full tilt. The rear fan is at 12v, and is quieter then the others while moving a **** ton of air. Of course the true test will come with summer.. and if I have to start dropping clocks Also, not as dusty in this config. No filters or foam.. Also, TY-143 is running on the "standard" setting in bios, so it can work with TY-147A instead of just over powering it. It still reaches about 1800rpm, so its quietish.

Fill in front and bottom as intake. Rear exhaust, closed top. Cut all grills out.

Closed top, 3x140mm front intake and 1-2 bottom intakes, no exhaust. Remove the brackets bellow the GPU or at least some of them, and remove the front PSU shroud cover.
You don't need anything more.

I used to have in my Meshify C 2x140mm front intakes and one rear exhaust.

I moved the rear exhaust on the front tied with zip ties bellow the 2x140mm fans.

I got 4°C improvements on already low CPU temps (from 52 to 48), got 1-2°C lower temps and 150 lower RPM on the GPU fans, and also allowed me to drop the inferior 140mm front intake from 1600 RPM to 800.

First thing I suggest is you read 'How Airflow Works' and 'Setting up a case for optimum cooling' in link below. They will give you a general idea of how to setup a case with good airflow.

Keep 2x A14 as front intake and just buy 2x 14cm Phanteks Halos rgb (normal or argb version )frame for them.

I run two front Noctua NF-A14 iPPC-3000s up front as intake and 4x cheap-o "Aigo" 140s on my Meshify S2 and it does great. The Aigo fans are run at ~30% (and even at 100% they're pretty crappy tbh) so it's still positive pressure.

Make sure you get the Lux version for the adapter (or buy the adapter separately). Without the adapter the Halos will only work properly with Phanteks controllers.
