Dual Radiators Fan Setup

So I'm getting 2 GTS360 rads and each rad will have 3 Silent Wings 3 fans on them in a Fractal Design Define S2 case. I originally thought about running the front rad as intake and the top as exauhst but I am wondering if I'll take a big performance hit from feeding the top rad warm air. Anyone have an optimal R6/S2 setup for dual 360 rads?

Hi,
Yes both intake and filtered that is why the top and front have screen filters on them.
Back of the case is also open for a reason it's a natural exit.

The difference running the top as intake or exhaust would be very insignificant to the components in the loop if you are doing a simple CPU/GPU loop - to the point it may not even be measurable. But, if the loop is more complex, or has more components, you may see a measurable benefit from running both as intake. However, in that case you may also see an increase in temps for the components that are not in the loop (MB, VRM, expansion cards, etc) since you would not be supplying any fresh air to them, nor would you be adequately exhausting warm air from the case (which would also cut down the efficiency of the fans on your rads, making your rads work less efficiently).

Personally, I would do front intake/top exhaust.

Yeah....the little girl hentai avatar is really creeping me out....

Always have the radiators intake if you can. You don't need that many exhaust fans, you can get away with just 1 and the rest intake.
I only have a rear fan exhausting and the rest intake on mine
