Would make a large difference if I added 3 x 120mm Fans or 2 x 140mm on the Top of my Case..

Would make a large difference if I added 3 x 120mm Fans or 2 x 140mm on the Top of my Case?

Yes, yes I realize that this topic has been brought up so, so many times but sorry.
I just need a simple yes or no.

BTW: I wanted to mention that I'm not using a AIO cooler. I'm using a Noctua NH-U9S cooler.

  1. We can't say yes or no, because we don't know what you have now.
  2. Heat rises so I would have thought having a couple of fans at the top to draw that out quicker might be good.

    In general, yes.
    But randomly adding 2 or 3 big fans on top might change things from positive pressure to negative pressure. Sucking in more dust.

    This is why a general idea of the whole system is needed, before a simple yes or no.

    Ok..Currently I have a Corsair Hydro H100i GT.installed. I'm going to change the CPU cooler too the Noctua NH-U9S.
    Sorry, about confessing you. After thinking about it, I started confusing myself.
  9. OK.
    So you're replacing the Corsair AIO with the Noctua?

    What other fans are in this?
    Where are they?
    Which are intake, which are exhaust?

    In general terms:
    In the front/bottom, out the back/top.
    Side, intake.

    Sorry, I don't have a side intake...=( =(

    EDIT: The Case is the Graphite Series 760T
  13. Let's start over.

    What case is this?
    What fans do you/will you have?

    A complete description is sort of needed, for any recommendation.
  14. Dont put near Front upper fan as out-take , it will end up pulling the cold air the near front fan takes in ..

    The upper fans should be above the motherboard Area , not near the front (that is 3x120 is a bad Idea) , unless you are using a Radiator OFC ...

    you can however install the upper near front fan as intake .

    Ok...That another problem...Not the Case..selecting the best fans...Next time, I'l mention everything..Sorry about this whole scr*w up.
  16. Best answer
    Given the whole discussion above, I have no idea of what to suggest except the general fan placement.

    In the front and/or bottom
    Out the back and/or top.
  17. Well, Thanks for everything, I'm not being sarcastic, far from.
    Thanks again.
