Post Cooling questions

The Blademaster in my 212 is on PWM and a Zalman ZM-F3 (with the low noise adapter) as the back exhaust, two of the Cooler Master R4-S2S-12AK-GP on the top as exhausts, the other two on the HDD cage, the stock fan of the case as the bottom intake with the stock front intakes. Also, two Lian Li CF-1210R on the side panel as intakes.

¿Is this setup/config decent enough or should I change something? Thanks in advance.

I would put the bottom fan from the hdd bay on the other side of the cpu heatsink in a push pull config(if you can), i doubt your storage will actually be getting warm enough to warrent them there! Imo in that situation i think it would be more worth while keeping the cpu cool.

Edit: Or one of other fans from the roof on the other side of the cpu heatsink because as you know hot air rises naturally anyway, just a thought! but it sounds like you got loads of fans, i bet you pc's as cool as a cucumber haha

hahahaha cheers at that.
But not quite; since is rather hot here lately and except the Zalman, the rest are rather low RPM/quality fans.
I tried the the bottom intake fan as a pull on my 212 and notice no temp drops, maybe 1C, don't think is worth it. On the bottom at least it keeps my GPU a bit cooler.
Thanks for the reply!

It's fine. If you have that many fans, temps are always going to be fine.

I'd even consider taking a few out to make things quieter.

I have that many because lately is around 34-39C, so they are needed. Once is midly cold again, I'll plug the 3 bottom intakes.
Thanks again for the replies.

Only thing to change is the CPU heatsink tbh.

Once I save up a bit of money I'll upgrade to something better.
Thanks for all the inputs. Cheers.
