i dont have th case yet so im asking to someone who has one or generaly knows about the case

Does it provide good cooling?

i noted that the space on the top is kinda small will a corsair h100i fit there? and if it fits is the possible to mount the h100i and fit 2x 120mm above for some extra air flow

and what do you guys think about this setup:
2x120 on the front (intake)
140mm in the back(exhaust)
h100i on the top (intake)
2x120mm on the bottom (exhaust)

im rather new to building pc's and its my 1st , any help will be apreciated

It provides good airflow. It's also not bad for custom water cooling. It's not very friendly for the Corsair H* series though.

To answer your questions:
1. Yes; it will fit a H100i at the top.
2. If you meant a push/pull on a H100i, the answer is still yes.

I wouldn't use a radiator and stick with a heatsink with a fan. The Storm Stryker doesn't allow for good positive internal air pressure so adding a H100i would not be too beneficial because it would really pull toward a negative internal air pressure. If you don't mind it, then go for it. The Storm Stryker can fit a H100i and can also fit a H100i + push/pull comfortably.

Your setup is not good. I would not use the bottom fans at all. It doesn't make sense to have it be exhaust because cool air falls and hot air rises so there's no reason to pull cold air out and leave more hot air inside. The top should always be used for exhaust and never for intake. Again, hot air rises so you're just fighting mother nature there.

I wouldn't use the bottom fan for intake either. That would push a stream of air upward and it'll be a wall against your front intake. So then your front intake becomes almost useless.

yeah, i kinda missed fisics class i guess xD

so i shouldnt use the bottom fans at all, for anything ?

My pc is not powerfull enough to require watercolling i think, basic air colling will be enough.

About the posite/negative air pressure, i dont really understand any of that, which setup and equipment do you think it will fit better.

i actualy already have the h100i so isnt there anyway to make it usefull to the case?

The only thing I would put at the bottom (after you remove the hidden tray) is a radiator. A fan is useless there because you're just creating a blockade for your front intake. You can mount a 240mm radiator at the bottom though (with the hidden tray removed). This is for custom water cooling, not the Corsair H* series.

Positive Internal Air Pressure means that there's more air going into the case than going out.
Negative Internal Air Pressure means that there's more air leaving the case than going in.

I prefer the first positive internal air pressure. It's a great way to prevent dust build up in your case as long as your intakes are dust filtered. With more air going in than going out, air will naturally leak out on any holes that do not have intake fans.

But with negative internal air pressure, you are forcing air through any possible gaps to replace air that you lost within the case. Since you cannot dust filter them, you will get more dust build up.

Either one works. Just depends what setup you like more.

You can put the H100i on top and have it be an exhaust. It would create negative internal air pressure, but again, if you're fine with it, go for it.

ok, thanks a lot, i think ill do that , spending 110€ for nothing would be kinda anoying

with the h100 set to exhaust the 140mm on the back would be better on intake or exhasut as well?

Top and rear should always be exhaust. It'll create negative air pressure, but it's not the end of the world. Worst case, you'll just take a Swiffer Duster or some compressed air in there more often.

Hi i want to a build system using CM Stryker and a Corsair H110 Hydro cooling, u don't recommend it, so i was wondering whats your best recommendation for the liquid cool for the processor.

My second question is i want to install one fan at the bottom of the case ( airflow in ), which front fan shall i switch to the side ?
