CM ComosC700P AirFlow Optimization

Hello there.I just bought today the new CM ComosC700P case.I want to replace the case fans with RGB ones.I decided to use for the front 3 x 140 MM MasterFan Pro 140 Air Pressure RGB 3 in 1 with RGB LED Controller and for the back 1 x 1400MM MasterFan Pro 140 Air Pressure RGB.For the CPU im using MasterLiquid ML240L RGB.The fans for the front and back are coming in 2 versions Air Pressure and Air Flow.So my question is what shoud i choose for the best cooling optimization ?

The answer is variable.

if you are not water cooling, the case fans should be optimised for air flow.

If the fans are on a radiator though (e.g. water cooling) they need to be static pressure, as this helps the air go through the radiator.

No water cooling , only the cpu will be liquid http://www.coolermaster.com/cooling/...id-ml240l-rgb/.
In front and back case will not be any radiator just simple fans.

Then you have your answer: Air Flow is what you want for the case, with static pressure for the cpu cooler.

In my opinion it won't really matter either way, since airflow fans will get hindered by the dust filter and the fact that the front of the case is open, and as such high pressure fans will probably shift just as much air.

I'm somewhat basing this on Corsair Thermal Engineer's reply to a question regarding such fans: source.
