    Hi,
    Yeah 280mm rads are too big
    240mm would fit but not very good at cooling anything.

    From my first post I recommended front and top fans as intake
    They are filtered for a reason and designed for intake so I haven't changed my mind on those

    Top rear doesn't matter what you do with the rpm just leave it as auto configuration won't hurt anything.

    120mm fan on hdd stack really doesn't matter if it pulls air through or pushes air in across the hdd's do it how ever you want too

    the rad will not get through to the oustide, I would need to cut a hole in the metal mesh but if rad stays inside that would be possible. I guess the exhaust system with rad would be better? Also for dust as if I will set it as intake there would not be any dust screen from outside and dust will build up on the rad and go inside as well. I wonder if this will help any with temps of GPU and HDD but I guess so. I will install 2x 140mm fans in front and most to the bottom so it will blow fresh air to the HDD bay, GPU and PCH.
    I just saw a video that exhaust fans are better for cooling than intake, normally I would think that blowing cold air is better.

    yes so you mean to leave the rear top as exhaust? I will try that combination first before moving the whole rad as @davemon50 suggested. It would be easier to just reverse one fan

    That's why consideration for the larger Corsair case is good for the larger radiators. The 750D or 750D Airflow might be a better option if you want to go there or see the need. Mine's the 650D but they don't make this model anymore, superceded by 750. The airflow is super.

    I have built mine unit from 3 different PCs and I had 3 cases, coolermaster stryker, the biggest and the ugliest one, the NZXT H440 New Edition and that Corsair 400C. NZXT was a bit bigger but no window which I really like. I do not want to buy another case but we will see.

    I setup now a bit different curves for fans and I switched places on top as the noctua one can go higher rpm without noise so it is better if that one stays on rear top. It is a bit of improvement. I will do some tests and invert the front top fan to act as intake and see if it makes any difference.
