  1. Make sure PSU has an opening for its fan. You may need to put an opening above the CPU cooler fan. Find some fans, and make some holes, to get some air flow in the case. Something like these maybe: https://www.amazon.com/Wathai-40mm-20mm-Brushless-Cooling/dp/B07Q2K3WYM/ref=sr_1_4?dchild=1&keywords=20mm+case+fan&qid=1617916452&sr=8-4
  2. The logic I have started to follow is to favor a positive/neutral case pressure. Having a negative case pressure is more likely to suck in dust through the "cracks" around side panels and case construction, any exhaust fans not running, any empty exhaust fan spots. I keep putting cheap fans in the top of my case, and they keep dying lol, so I would agree with ^
  3. Some cheap fans I just bought. Have yet to install them. https://www.amazon.com/upHere-Airflow-Computer-Cooling-NT12044-3/dp/B08HQPNZ8C/ref=sr_1_6?dchild=1&keywords=upHere+120mm+White+Case+Fan&qid=1617908475&sr=8-6 To have the mobo control the fans, use splitters or a hub. You have two headers, you will have two sets of fans. Otherwise your looking at Either, a software controlled fan controller, something like this: https://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Fan-Controller-Commander-CL-9011110-WW/dp/B0725HP1J2/ref=sr_1_4?dchild=1&keywords=case+fan+control
  4. High static pressure fans are recommended for coolers. F12 is such a fan: "Teaming up eleven stator guide vanes with a specially conceived seven blade impeller, the NF-F12’s Focused Flow system creates outstanding static pressure and focuses the airflow for superior performance on heatsinks and radiators. " The S12A is stated to be a case fan: "The NF-S12A marks the third generation of Noctua’s signature S12 series quiet case fans" FWIW, if temps are good, that's bottom line
  5. I have an M.2 drive installed on the backside of my motherboard, and it gets pretty hot. 86°c (summer is coming and it may get worse) I have about 4.3mm of space to work with. If I use a 4mm heatsink with a 0.5mm thermal pad, will the 0.2mm create too much pressure? I can shave the heatsink down to correct it. My theory was to have the heatsink contact the MB mounting plate of the case to further heat transfer.
