Can anyone give me a proper fan setup for this Cooler Master Mb 500 casing,currently the two front fans r in intake position the above ones r in exhaust position and the radiator is in exhaust position,I'm facing temperature rise when I launch a game the processor reaches to 65° celsius

Well you should get lower cpu temps if you put the rad to the upper front panel intake. Maybe even add one fan to it so that it acts push-pull as the front roof fan is pretty much useless anyway as an exhaust.

 

65C with that cpu while gaming is not even that bad unless you run your fans +1200rpm.

You are seeing normal temps. If you want lower temp, you can setup manual voltage.

So I have the same case the cooler master MB500 with Ryzen 2600x, It took me four days to master the airflow this case. The cooling system I’m using is EVO 212 And when I game my avg temp is 54c and highest is 62C but that’s once in a blue moon.  

 

The worst thing for this case is 120mm AIO Liquid Cooler, It doesn’t matter where you put it front to back, as you know no radiator can be put on top,  which would be the best. 

The only way you’re going to get good temps is 240mm or 360mm AIO Liquid Cooler and mounted in front as intake this will lower temp a lot for CPU, downside is GPU will be 5c-8c hotter.  

 

 So there’s no positive outcome, how to run a warmer CPU and Cooler GPU, or  Vice versa.

 

 That’s why the best cooling system for this case is AIR not Water.
