I think this is going to vary substantially case to case. I run mine identically in and out.
I used too but I recently turned up my exhaust a little for the whole “positive pressure” thing. I mean I run 2000rpm Noctua Industrials that are at 100% by 35C

Turning exhaust fans more from intake making negative inside pressure...
But like @oxrufiioxo says it may vary across the cases. What I said is more like a general principal.

Hello all... resident noob returns. My GPU finally showed up today, connected it, did my best with the cable management, closed to the case, plugged into a power source anddd didn’t work.

When I flick the power switch on the back of the case a little light comes on the GPU so I know there’s power. However when I press the case on/off button everything flashes red (fans, MOBO etc.) for a second without noise and cancels.

Anyone have any ideas? I’m scared to try it again in case I fry something.

Tried to video it but can’t attach a video here so screenshot the video.

Just as I say that, tried it one last time and just as I pressed power on the bulb from my living room ceiling light just popped and dropped to the floor... I shall be turning my house off and going to live in the woods now.

on power button press any fans spinning or something or just lights on the fans?
i'd start with removing all connections to smart device and corsair's fan controller and connecting fans directly to mb.
for back fan you have sys_fan1 bottom left of the processor, for top fan you can use pump_fan1 header and front fans attach to sys_fan3&4 (p26 mb manual).
also make sure you dont have any bolts or other metal parts stuck between mb and tray of the case (if you have torchlight you can use it to have sight on bottom part of the mb

Hi, no fans spinning and no beeps either (was reading up on some sort of beep test). I think I’ll have to maybe disconnect almost everything till I can power it on and then slowly add stuff in one at a time. The case is extremely tight at the back so I’m wondering if when trying to cram cables in space that something has popped out of my PSU (modular). I was careful to touch the case all the time too try earth myself (wore some rubber-soled slippers when I could).

at this point dont close case covers. lets first power it up then close covers also access to the case will be much easier till we resolve this.
my guess is something with connection of smart devise and corsair fan controller is wrong. so disconnect those from the mb (usb link for smart device too) attach fans to the mb and check if it can power up.

do you have competent computer technician around you.

Yeh I believe the smart device etc. is in right but it is also confusing. I’ll just keep the case fans connected and unlink the RGB.

I don’t know any tech people personally in my local area but I’m sure there will be some.

I’ve tried to make a bit of a connections diagram based on memory (not at PC now) if anyone can see if something stands out as wrong? Hope the Google Sheets link works:
