can someone help me understand setting up the intake and exhaust with a corsair h105 and the nzxt h440 case. I havent set up my pc yet but I wanted to better understand the airflow setup that would be best for keeping my pc nice and cool!

The general rule of thumb with airflow is to have about equal intake/ exhaust. OR having a few more intake than exhaust fans can be helpful. Considering the NZXT H440 has 3 front intake, you better off with two fans on the H105 exhausting out of the top of the case. This means you will have 3-4 intake and 3 exhaust giving you relatively balanced airflow and overall the best thermals you can realistically get. Keep in mind that Push vs Pull through a radiator has almost no difference on cooling performance. One final note, a push pull setup with 2 fans on both sides of the radiator, typically doesn't offer a lot more performance than a Push or Pull setup. So pick either Push or Pull depending on which you like more astetically since it really won't have much difference in cooling overall. Hope this was helpful understanding airflow. Good Luck! :)

thank you so much! i was planning on using the front 3 as intake and using the radiator on the top as exhaust as well as the 140 fan at the back as my exhaust
