oh theres space for 1 maybe 2 120mm fans along the top, just not enough space for the h80 ones (as theres 2 and the radiator)
So I'll try that, fans are only cheap after all.. Thank you for your help!
Where do the fans plug into btw? I take it that varies between each motherboard?
Yeah.. try to add 2 Cooler Master 120mm SickleFlow fans on top there and make them push the air out of the case.
Your power supply usually comes with a 12v power adapter with 2 molex plugs. If your motherboard doesn't have case fan power on the board itself you can use those molex plugs to connect those 2 fans to it.
12v molex power splitter
And fan power plugs (usually fans do come with those fan/molex adapters though)
So here's what I suggest you do.
Keep your H80 setup as it is..
Add the 2 120mm fans on top of your case (if you can only fit one put only 1) and look for the arrow on the fan itself to put it in so it blow air out of the case.
Connect it to your motheboard chasis/case fan power or to the molex adapter.
Close the case and try it out..
If you see a drop in temp that's great.. you can then optionally add another 120mm fan on the bottom.. like here:
This will make your H80 blow air in, your front fan will blow air in, your bottom fan will blow air in and you top 2 fans will blow hot air out..
This should make your air flow inside great.
