I added the extra fans because I had no other use for them. The bottom one was directly below the GPU, redirecting fresh air to it, and the top fan was exhausting from the CPU and VRMs. None of the parts were running particularly hot or anything, but the added fans helped reduce about 3-5C from the GPU and about 2-4C from the CPU... a "feels good" result.I don't think I will do this, why is another intake needed when you already have 400mm of it?
I'm thinking just 2x200mm intake, then 1x rear exhaust and 1x top exhaust nearest to the rear one, and leave the other exhaust blank... just to give it a directional diagonal flow at least? Cause the heat from the gpu will be pumping into the case as well.
