    I assume this is in your HAF 932.

    I'd put the 4 on the side blowing air into the case, the one in the front blowing air into the case, and one at the back and top blowing air out of the case.

    Its just better to have the side fans blowing in. Fresh air for the GPU and its cleaner with positive presure

    The problem is that I have my radiator outside in the back of the case and if I put a fan at the back blowing air out of the case the hot air will hit the radiator and I think that's not good, at the top of the case I have already a rad with 2 fans? But l think it's mounted wrong because the fans are blowing air front inside to the case to outside,

    P.s
    The CPU it's watercooled

    That's fine, the side fans still should blow into the case

    But now my question is, having a front fan blowing air inside the case and having the side fans blowing Air inside the case also all this air from where is going out?
    The fans at the top shouldn't be blowing hot air to the rad where they are set it up...

    Air in the front and sides, out the top and back. Even if its thru the rads. The top you can actuly go ether way but the back out definitely

    My recommendation still stands. But radical set up.

    If your worried about the Rad in the back blowing forward just turn the fans around. The air should be moving to the back and out

    The rad is far enough away from the back that its not going to matter

    Thanks a for your help and time,
    I will add one fan in order to move the air out and the side fans as you said air in.

    Have another question,
    Adding a big radiator and adding an extra reservoir means more water running into the loop, would that help to cool down temperatures?
