I've just ordered all the parts for my PC build but just wondered what the best fan setup would be. I have ordered the Fractal Design Define S case with 2 additional Corsair ml140 pro fans and a Corsair H100i v2 Liquid cooler. I was going to do one of the following:
1) Remove the 2 stock 140mm fans from the case and replace them with the ml140 fans (default setup-intake at the front, exhaust at the back). I would then have the h100i at the top of the case (at the back end) with the 2 fans as exhaust. I was worried this might create a very negative pressure in the case(plus i wouldn't be using the stock fans)
2) 3 fans as intake at the front (2 stock, 1 ml140), 1 ml140 as exhaust at the back and the 2 radiator fans at the top(back end) exhausting air. This will still create a negative pressure but it will be far less than option 1, although i'm not sure if using the stock fans is necessary (do i need that many fans?).
Of these options which would be best?
BTW I will be running an overclocked i5 6600k (at 4.6 hopefully) and a nvidia gtx1070 ftw overclocked (up to 2100mhz hopefully). So i think ill need fairly good cooling.
