Here is a diagram for my proposed set up (Parts are still arriving, so I gauged the fit of the fans based on the scale in case manual.)
It is to be used as an at home After Effects workstation. I’m kinda trying to not spend too much, here is the cost list/parts list for anyone curious.
I’ve been recommended Noctua Fans, but they’re like $15 bucks a pop. I was told to atleast get a 150mm(with 140mm adapter) for the rear exhaust. What are some decent brands/types? (I don’t care about lighting or looks, never one to get a case with a window. I like darkness. Speaking of which, I question if the NZXT is recommended on reliability or aesthetics)
Additionally, based on conversations with others regarding if the NZXT x62 can be top mounted, I’m arriving at the conclusion that the 280mm Radiator w 4x Push/Pull fans [ON TOP] is not ideal for this case, especially with the 5.25 Bay being used. (I have a diagram for that proving it wont fit, but I don’t want to clutter the post). I prefer not to have it top mounted anyways, openings on top of my case makes me nervous.
One more question to squeeze in, unrelated to fans, for those familiar with the Fractal R6.
Is the backplate on the Aorus Master going to be an issue for me? I read I may have to mod, i.e. removing a part of the R6? I’ve never built something before either, so this should be fun.
