Sounds good. I would block the front half of bottom venting so the airflow from front fans pushes air back over/through HDD & SSDs then out bottom. SSD/HHD don't need but just a little airflow to stay safe.

Can you use TY-147A fans for front intakes? They would be much better than Eiswind Pure Edition 140 are. You might be able to mount them round sides up and down in front. I have included images of cutting round side flat. You can see in image it's basically cut / file / sand the rounded sides down flat to be flush with round inner frame. so it will fit in. Other image is of open areas you need to block so air fans push into case has to flow through case, not leak back in front of fans.

Your first fan setup is best. Top intakes hurt, not help case airflow.

Good! You understand the value of removing PCIe slot covers!

With TY-147A as front intakes you won't need any exhaust fans. Oh! Might want to block bottom vents so air from intakes moves back and not down and out of case before it cools anything.

(something like this one : https://cdr.cz/sites/default/files/f...n-focus-13.jpg i will cut out the HDD box )

For intake i will be using 2x Alphacool Eiswind Pure Edition 140mm (its basicly a BeQuiet PureWings2, but 1400rpm max instead of normal 1000 rpm )
For exhaust i will use my Arctic P12 PST
CPU cooler will be Thermalright Macho rew A(B.W) with one TY 147A
VGA is MSI GamingX 1080TI (yes I will remove all PCI covers )

I have some spare fans laying around ( 147A) , where to put them .

2option :
-Top intake ,near the front , above the 5,25 area to feed extra cool air for Macho (this time positive pressure is 100% with 3x 140mm intake and 120mm exhaust)
-Top back exhaust ,abouve the CPU cooler (not sure about pressure inside ( 2x 140mm behind filter intake / 1x140mm ulfiltered exhaust / 1x 120mm unfiltered exhaust)
I dont vant use any bottom fan, since Focus G has trash filter mount under ,impossible to take out without flipping upside down the whole chassis )
Thanks

ajx Oh thanks by the way

You ve mentioned Scythe Ninja 5 above

https://imgur.com/a/Dz9QGa4

I made some cable management but the cable almost touching heatsink, is it safe?

Also, should i lower fans? i need to raise them little higher because its touching ram and heatsink
I dont know if raising fans affect airflow efficiency?

Thanks

It covered fully Z of ryzen

Looks like about pea size. That's a little more than I would use, but it should be fine.

You might find info in link below about TIM application of interest:

D-EJ915 The Fuma 2 is better than the Ninja 5 even with the same fans on both when I tested both of mine. Unless you're going for an aesthetic build and need the Ninja I'd pass on it.

If you can fit the TS140 Power Doyll mentioned that is the single tower cooler to get at the moment its price/performance is absurd at around $50 typically.

I think the biggest single tower Scythe Ninja 5 with 2x Noctua NF 12x25 fan could be it, since its only few degrees behind top coolers like D15 , and Ninja have only max800 rpm fans ( i cant stand noise over 1200 rpm anyway , so TY 143 and 3000 rpm noctuas are not an option )
One of the best if not very best is Thermalright TRUE Spirit 140 Power. It has 6x 8mm heatpipes giving it more ability to transfer more heat from base to fins than others. It cools a little better than NH-D14 which cools as well or slightly better than NH-D15 with same fans. Replace stock fan with TY-143 and it's as quiet as with stock fan at same speed, but at higher rpm / noise levels it can gives 8-9c lower temps. But keep in mind it's 171mm tall so won't fit all cases and 155mm wide / fins reach 77.5mm each side of center so it blocks PCIe sockets on some motherboards.

Thanks

It isn't actually a method for applying thermal paste, its for checking or testing thermal paste application methods.

So you can use it to see how your paste spreads with your choice of application technique, but you aren't supposed to put a cooler on there afterwards as you'll introduce air pockets.
