I'm looking for advice from those who know the R4 and have experience with case fans/ cpu cooling etc.
My current cooling setup is as follows:
140mm Stock FD case fan pulling air in the front (for those who know the R4 it's in the top of the dual fan bracket) with the top hard drive cage removed for better airflow.
120mm (I believe) Stock FD case fan exhausting air out the back.
Side vent/ fan area and top rad mount/ fan areas still covered by the R4 Moduvent foam.
CPU Cooler is the Noctua NH-U14S.
Currently, I have a twin pack of the Corsair SP 120mm High Performance series on order that should be in any day now, and I plan to put them in the front of the case since there's a door and apparently the high static pressure helps with pulling in cool air in a case like the R4.
So basically what I'm wondering is what do you guys think the best step forward for airflow/ cooling my CPU would be? What I'm thinking about are a couple different things, and I'm just going to list them because some of them don't work with each other and I'd love it if you guys could tell me what the best options together are.
1: Replacing the back 120mm fan with a 140mm Corsair AF series. (Trying to stick with corsair for uniformity).
2: (Given 1) moving the stock back 120mm fan to the left door vent/ opening and removing foam.
3: Replacing Noctua NH-U14S with an AIO like the Corsair H100i or CoolerMaster Glacier 240L.
4: (Given 3) Using the two SP 120mm I have on order for the AIO/ rad thing.
5: (Given 3 and 4) ordering another twin pack of the SP High Performance (or quiet, don't care really) and using for front intake.
6: (Disregarding 3, 4, and 5) ordering a twin pack of the Corsair AF 120's and using as exhaust on the top rad mount opening.
7: (Given 6 although 6 isn't required) I would use the SP 120's on have on order for the front intake.
So I guess what I'm looking for as a response is something like "You don't need a rad, and you should use two AF's in the top for exhaust, but you don't need to replace the stock FD case fan in the back".
Thanks a ton.
