    Hi all,

    Just had my parcel delivered and did not realize that my RAM modules won't clear my CPU 240mm rad to be mounted on top and was hoping for some sound advice to what's the best way to have fans organized.

    Original was going to be:
    • front 2x 120mm fans as intake
    • top 240mm rad for CPU exhaust
    • back 120mm GPU AIO exhaust
    As I said, I won't fit the 240mm up top due to RAM clearance

    I was considering:
    • front 240mm rad for CPU intake
    • top 2x or possibly 3x 120mm fans as intake???
    • back 120mm GPU AOI exhaust
    Any thoughts are appreciated!

    Edit: should have said the GPU has one fan on the card and it's own AIO rad/fan as well.

    What case have you got? Could mount Rad at the front and have fans pulling in from the front and have exhaust at rear

    mount the rad in the front for intake, then put another intake fan either in the front or bottom and then 2 fans exhaust at the back/top.
    that would be 3 intake and 2 exhauts which depending on fan speed should give you positive pressure to reduce dust build up.
