Ok so I have a nzxt h440 and a corsair h100i. There are 3 120mm intake fans at front. 1 140mm exhaust and I can put up to 3 120mm at the top. Should I mount the h100i at the top as exhaust or intake. I heard slightly higher intake helps with dust but what do you guys think

If you put the H100i at the top as the exhaust, is there any fresh air moving across the motherboard though, if not then consider the rear fan as an intake if you want to benefit the cpu for more cooling performance

Top as exhaust but you could add 2 fans to it for a push/pull H100i.

Also think that you can remove all the not-used front bays to let it empty and the air crossing much better. The air flow is amazing if you can remove them!

Most likely what I am going to do. Mount the ssd on the psu cover and the mechanical hdd in one bay and remove the rest.

Does push pull help with case airflow though? I though it just gave you a little better cpu cooler performance.

Then I would put on the top bay to aplify your air flow! That case is amazing :D

There is a spot to mount a mechanical drive on bottom of the case also but it would probably make noise.

Yeah it doesn't really help with case cooling in this case since the extra 2 fans would be pulling air out the the top. But overall I think you have enough cooling. Just install the H100i on top and you'll be good to go. The only thing I'd be worried about is noise.

Yea with 6 fans it is probably going to get pretty loud. Going to swap all the fans for corsair sp120 quiet edition for rad and 3 corsair 120af in front 1 corsair af140 in back all quiet edition.

Quietness is overlooked by many people but I think you are doing right by adding quieter lower RPM quality fans. It does make a difference.
