    no worries :) it works very well and my friend is so happy with this setup
    when the upper part air pressure is low, all the air from the down part will be pushed up and the empty space will be filled by the cool air pulled in by the 3 intake fans :)
    it works better with a "longer" case.

    yeah, it's gonna be a hot PSU. PSU memang hot wat. :) i've never seen a cool PSU.

    and based on the pic, when i stay bottom fan i usually refer to the front fan. i guess wrong term. should've called it front fan.

    Too extreme.1 in top 1 in back.one in front is plenty to keep the air flowing through your case.want more cooling,go for liquid :lol: otherwise your computer sounds like a wind tunnel :shock:

    No. Because VRs are not the only components generating heat. There's other stuff inside like transformer which produced a lot of heat, and often not cooled my water cooling. Water block is only on the VRs. So I think water cooling PSU is not such a great idea, great for bragging though, like water cooling a CPU a few years back. :D

    voltage regulator.

    I think antec PSU is the hottest.
    man..the dual fans spin so slow till you cant even feel the air that is being pushed out. they will only change to fast mode when the PSU temp. reach 40C.

    LOL. I also added a 80mm fan on my 5" bay before on my old system :D but it didn't really made much difference... so i removed it eventually ...

    cold air is best dragged from the bottom of the case as it will replace the hot air more easily.

    so the 80mm fan at the drive bay there would be the exhaust ?

    yeah. pointing outwards. but iwon't put there if i were you. the drive bay area i find is not that hot. i'll put on top of the case or near the PSU(back).

    Best :) somemore the 2x top 120mm holes can use to cool radiator in the future. Side panel blowhole can cool graphics card and VR. front intake can cool our HDs. All in one..hehe..
    will mod my case according to this "blurprint" very soon
    still "practising" how to use holesaw now :mrgreen:
    you know..can't screw up or else it will look cacat mahhh..

    How many times do you have to tell us that's the best airflow design? :doh:

    I don't like putting radiator at the top. I prefer putting at the bottom. Radiator will become air trap! :D

    sorry :doh: :doh: :doh:
    hehe..the first one is pic. this one is "blurprint" :mrgreen:

    the radiator won't be the highest point :)
    the shroud will be very "thick" and the air trap/reservoir will be the highest point :)
