Any suggestions for fan placement? Right now I have 3x120 front intake, 120 rear intake and 2x120 top exhaust. Trying for positive pressure.

Just got this case and put my rig in it.
Very Good Case and lots of room to work
Good air flow and connections
Way better than what I had previous
Not a lot of 5.25 bays which I don't need

Juat doesn't seem right compartmental cooling or not going to a smaller case with Multi GPU's in mind.....
I run 2 280x's with absolutly no heat issues. 1x140mm fan on rear, 2x 140 front and 2 120 top for radiator.

Works Perfect.

2-140 mm silverstone mag air filters on bottom air openings

custom filters coming in a bit from Demci Flex to replace the side PS case filter, bottom air filters and add to the rear of case for ps compartment .
Go air cooling! Just curious if you tested your temps without the top fan or was it like that from the beginning?

^^^^ Get rid of that behomth Air Cooler on your CPU and throw in a nice H100i or Swiftech H220 AIO......those things are a thing of the past...watch your CPU Temps improve and get to some seriou OC'ing.... ;) I'm pretty sure any of those AIO 240mm will fit up top in that case!
