Best setup for a NZXT Phantom.

I have an original NZXT Phantom case and right now I have an air CPU cooler. I would like to upgrade to a 240 mm AIO and I am wondering how I should do it. I have two 200 mm fans in the top for exhaust and I am wondering if my system temps will get too hot if I mount the radiator there and take away the fans? If I were to do that I would also add a side fan blowing air onto components. Would that side fan make up for the difference of not having the two top fans? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Just make sure you have a rear exhaust and a front intake, and the temps will be fine. People always think you need more fans than you really do. Don't forget the AIO cooler will be an exhaust as well.

No need for a side fan at all.

Okay well I have a 140 mm in the front as intake and a 120 mm in the back as exhaust so that should be plenty then? Along with the radiator fans pulling air out the top?
