I was looking at that case myself previously. If you are going air-cooled, you should at least have two in front on Intake and the rear fan on Exhaust. For increased airflow add one more on the top rear position. This will allow your air to flow through the case easier and remove more heat. Your CPU cooler should blow air from the front of the case towards the rear fan.

Per their specs: Make sure the CPU cooler you select is under 159 mm GPU length states 360mm BUT it may not include the clearance for a fan up front. (Download the manual and check) Don't chinch-out on a power supply, check out the PSU forums for suggestions. But watch the size for this case. (160mm)

If you mount the I/O in any position other then near CPU itself there is more room.

The only reason they list that length is because of the cut-outs for the power supply cables otherwise you can mount as large a unit as will fit within the chassis.

Thank you but I found a case with 3 fans pre installed on new egg but if I add one on the top do I put it as intake or exhaust ? And which fan should I choose

Exhaust. I would try to match the fans that come with the case.

You could also look under Case Fans parts picker and filer by size and ratings.

So 80mm exhaust with 120mm intake is good?

kschendel 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

80mm is pretty small, it's likely to be a bit noisy. If noise matters, I'd look for a case that can fit a 120mm exhaust (minimum).

I don’t care about that but is it gonna be good airflow ?
