    I just installed my 2600k and new mobo last week. I switched some fans around and not sure if it is the most optimal airflow choice. My current airflow:

    Is this the best choice? Keep in mind the rear intake is an H80 push/pull and it is about a foot away from a wall so I'm not sure how much intake it is actually doing. Thanks again TPU. :toast:

    EDIT: Before this fan setup, I had my H70 as exhaust and the top right 200 was intake and I liked that setup alot, but switched to this after I was told you should always intake on a radiator.

    Rear fan on the H70 cooler make exhaust. It doesn't really make much of a difference though. It will be fine the way it is if that's what you want to do. "Always have radiator fan as intake"? That's not true.

    It's not about what I want to do. I'm asking in terms of the best possible cooling.

    Yes, the first part of my post gives you that info. Right now you blowing warm air into your case from the radiator and warming your case.

    Unless you add or subtract a fan, that's what it would be. Yes.

    Temps seem to be about the same at most times while sometimes giving me an extra degree of cooling overall. Thanks again.
