Greetings, About to embark on building a mid-high end rig for the first time in ~ a decade or so and have nearly all my parts picked, I think. The only concerns with my build is the Nzxt 500 case, seeing lots of talk and reviews about it being a negative pressure set-up with only 2 exhaust fans.
The only concern I have is that due to the negative pressure cooling qualities of the fan set up in this case, will I face any overheating issues with my set-up, especially if I plan to overclock? Also, with it being negative pressure, would I be better off going with a blower style reference card instead of the open-air card that I currently have picked out?
Here is my build: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/4kqNbX
Please let me know, since I'm pretty rusty on my pc knowledge as of late but think I have a decent build planned out. The other case I had in mind if this heating problem WILL be an issue is the Corsair 400C. Let me know your thoughts on which one I should go with! (keep in mind, I would prefer the Nzxt 500 based purely on looks)
