Is there a cpu lottery on temps? I thought it was only for the overclock.
I have the intake 2 fans on the motherboard rear one running 60% until 75c which ramps up 100%
Bottom fan switching off (it makes a lot noice for some reason on this specific case) until 55c , then 60% until 75c that again ramps up 100%
All radiators fans are as exhaust connected to the case fan controller , i am running it at 1/3 of their speed to keep it quiet but even at full speed the performance gain is small compared to the noise gain.
I also removed the filters from inside the front and top panels , also completely removed the bottom panels so i can improve the raw airflow.
* The top rad is from the phobya's 60mm one but i think its rebranded Alphacool UT60 with the kits 3 included fans and the front one is the PE360 from ek with vardar fans.

That was my first plan but the case's front mount is not that great , it has some weird bumps that creates a space between the fan and the radiator , so i couldnt mount it with ek's included screws. What i did is that i removed the air filters in the front and upper panel to increase noticeably the fans performance.
Rear and bottom fans are also unfiltered as intakes.
Is this fan layout loosing that much performance?
The cpu block is indeed in the normal position
As for the card that wasnt in the instructions and temps are more than great , sorry to argue here but why this could be an issue?
