System specs:

FX8150 + Corsair H80
Vengeance 1866 MHZ 12GB
Crosshair V FOrmula board
680GTX stock cooler
Stike-X PSU 1200W
HAF-X Case

ANy way my question is the following. I have the HAF X case with every single fan installed in it. So now i just installed my Corsair H80 (don't tell me i could have gotten a noctua i know i have my reasons) So now the thing is Intake or out take. I figured i put it in as intake and slap an extra fan on top so right now my fan configuration is.

Front 240MM Intake
Side 240MM intake
Corsair 120M intake
TOP 2x240MM out take.

DO you think i should keep it as intake or change it as outtake ?

Usually the airflow inside the case is designed so that fan is intake, surely the radiator may hinder the airflow, but still is better to push air through the radiator than trying to take out hot air throgh it

+1 for this.

Corsair also recommends (if I recall correctly) you use your H60/H80 CPU coolers as an intake IF you have a top exhaust.

Thanks brother so i got it the right way. Now i need to change the stock fans with better once and put cooler master led fan's on top + more lighting.

But thanks for the answer .
