New fans in the case
 
Hello,

I'd like to know how you would place the fans in my case to get good airflow(right now I have 2 mounted fans - 1 rear, 1 middle front). Also, soon I will buy cpu cooling for ryzen 2600.
Is it good to mount 2 fans under GPU ? I have RTX 2060 and I would like to oc it.

Probably I will buy Arctic P12 PWM PST(static pressure) or Arctic F12(high airflow), they are decent for this price.

Those bottom fans will only be circulating hot air. Just go with front intakes (as many as the case supports) and maybe a rear exhaust. Remove the PCI covers (or get some vented covers) to allow air to better circulate around the video card. For fans go with the P12 five pack. The F series is not that good, not with the P series out.

What about top ? Should I go with 3 front, 1 rear and 2 top ?
As for the back, I'll only take off this part - https://imgur.com/a/2Ju9ULQ because pci covers on the back can only be broken off.

You might find the guide below to optimizing case airflow of interest. It explains how to get cool air into case and to CPU and GPU coolers.

Only additional thing is to seal any holes in front not covered by front intake fans.

Unless you really need top fans (top mounted radiator) I would not use them and instead cover the whole top panel to reduce noise.

Fill the front and bottom with as many intake fans as possible.
Leave top closed and unobstruct rear or add a fan on rear behind CPU cooler.

In building in normal tower case using normal GPU we need lots of front to back airflow so the heated air coming off of GPU is moved back and out of case and not back into GPU .. or up and into CPU cooler. This is why in earlier post I said to remove all PCIe back covers to increase rear vent area around GPU and thus better front to back airflow around GPU. 2x front and 1x bottom good pressure rated fans are usually all that is needed.
