I've practically the same RIG you can see in this picture. What do You think about the airflow?



Front panel x2 intakes (AF120) x2 intakes (default case fans)
Rear x1 intake (default case fan)
Bottom x1 intake (AF120)
Top Push/Pull x4 exhaust (SP120)

Maybe I'll put x2 intake on side window panel (AF120).

Temps dropped about 1~3ºC on Chipset and VGA, and 0.5~1ºC on CPU compared with my last configuration, that is rear exhaust and no bottom intake.

Do You like this config? What do You do for do it better?

Thanks!

VGA Card's = reference (exhaust rear only)

-> side fans = intake
-> front fans = intake
- > H100 = exhaust
-> no fan in the back
-> 4:3 drive bay adapter witt 120mm = intake (with focus flow like ap121)

VGA Card's = custom (partial hot air vented into case)

-> side fans = intake
-> front fans = exhaust
-> h100 = intake
-> back fan = exhaust
-> 4:3 drive bay fan = exhaust
-> maybe flip PSU

I've two-way SLi MSI 670 PE/OC. Do you think my poor "airflow conception" is true?

Do you think these MSI graphic cards exhaust so much heat inside the case?

yes, my guess would be 75% would remain in the case
(all of the most right hand fan and 50% of the other)

I am not sure this is the greatest idea, especially if you have a 2x120 radiator on the top. The first thing i see is that your intake is in the back?! all the heat from your video and power block exhaust will get sucked back into the case if you do it that way. the 2nd thing i would change is the top being an intake and not an exhaust. If its an exhaust with a radiator attached, your trying to cool your CPU with hot air. Having the top as an intake also pushes the air balance to a positive pressure, keeping dust out, and pushing all hot air out any slot of crack.

I forget which YT official corsair video i watched, but they pretty much said the way their cases were deigned, they show the user their best case fan scenario by adding filters to where they believe intakes can and should go. Just a rule of thumb Ive always gone by.

i am not sure i am reading your layout right, but it looks like you have all fans on exhaust except the plexi & bottom vent on intakes?

If this is right, youre creating a massive vacuum in your case, and dirt and dust and everything else will get sucked in through the bottom. Id suggest switching the front from exhaust to intake, giving you a 45%/55% pressure system, with just a little leaning on the negative pressure side.
