So this is a case i purchased on a whim when i went down to fry's
http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Zalman-MS800-Cas...

Now that i have brought it home i am worried about airflow.
I have not purchased a graphics card yet but it will be a 670, 680, or a 7970
I have not purchased a cpu cooler yet but i do plan on overclocking, was going to consider a corsair closed loop system, or a CM Hyper 212

Im mainly worried that with no intake fans on the front the system is going to run really hot after i overclock it.
Should i return the case and go for something with better airflow? I was originally going to go with a Thorv2 or a CM Storm Trooper/Stryker

I don't think it will be much problem.

It had bottom intake, and it seem it can install 2 fan in middle for directing it to the Processor and VGA....

I can buy more fans no problem, if i put 2 exhaust fans on the top and have 0 intake fans is that going to be a problem..
I don't see where it has any intake besides the bottom and wouldn't it be hard to get air through there?

The air will enter as long as it had mesh or hole......
(I'm forget it positive or negative pressure configuration)..

The middle fan will help to push air.... (keep the air moving)

But yes it will not as good as one with extra fan for intake, but I don't see if it will be much problem... (since u already bought the case)....

Thank's

I guess ill just throw an extra fan on top to have 2 exhaust fans, have a fan in the middle blowing over the mobo/graphics and out the back/top exhaust, and add an extra fan on the bottom to bring in more air which should be good.
