Recently built my first computer, not too sure if the temps are the best in my 500h. 


Build list:

Intel i5-9400f

Nvidia EVGA RTX 2070

Gskills 16gb kit (2x 8GB)

Corsair 750w power supply

Corsair ML fans 120mm/140mm

Corsair h100 AIO cooler

Samsung EVO 860 1TB SSD

Samsung M.2 1TB



Idle temp is around 38-40, had a few programs running while i was playing some games and temps went up to 50-51 while playing on ultra settings. 

I know those are pretty decent temps but id like some insight into how i could possibly position fans better and get better overall air flow. 


Thank you.

General rule of thumb is front and bottom intake, rear and top exhaust. 


Presuming an Nzxt H500 case, H100 in the front as intake. Fans on the rear & top as exhaust. As good as you are going to get.

80+ ratings certify electrical efficiency. Not quality.
