    I've just moved my old pc into a new Dynamic case with a 360mm AIO and I'm trying to figure out where to place all the fans and radiator.

    I've currently got the rad in the second compartment with the fans for it in the main chamber blowing onto it as it looks best this way. 3 X 120mm fans on the bottom as intake and 3 X 120mm fans on the top as exhaust.

    Could anyone who is familiar with this case please enlighten me to do it a better way.


    Asus Rampage III Extreme
    i7 980x @ 4.21Ghz
    12gb DDR3 1600Mhz
    MSI R9 390x
    Asus DCU II 390x (not currently used but will if I can keep temps under control)
    Corsair HX1000W
    Deepcool Captain EX 360 AIO

    Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

    Consensus seems to be intake or radiator/aio on the side with 3 up top for exhaust but if you have more, fill it up!

    Thanks for your fast response!

    From what I've read, a lot of people use the side as an intake and mount the rad up top as an exhaust. In my mind blowing warm case air on to a rad would be detrimental to CPU temps but I have zero experience with water cooling and radiators...
