NZXT Phantom 630 Windowed Edition - Air Flow Question

DigiJedi

Hi Guys,

Recently purchased the Windowed edition Phantom 630. Compared with the regular 630, it doesn't come with the side 200mm fan.

I have the front 200mm fan for intake and the back 140mm for exhaust. My question is, for optimal air flow, should I use the top 200mm fan as an extra intake or exhaust? I'm undecided on whether I'll go with a 120mm radiator h80i or 240mm radiator h100i.

Thanks!

Edit: Here's my build for a better idea :) http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/p/xbx2Bm

If i was in your situation i would use it as a exhaust, the 140mm fan might not be able to handle the 200mm fan

Case fans at top are usually oriented as exhaust.
