Case Fans Setup Opinion

I have the following setup as can be seen in the picture. This case is a Corsair RGB Spec Omega. It has a glass part in the front of the case that i replaced to increase airflow.

 

All the RGB fans are Corsair HD120 and the other two are 120 mm Corsair ML fans that came with the AIO which is a Corsair PRO XT. 

 

I currently have the front 5 fans setup as intakes and the top 2 and back 1 setup as exhaust. I was wondering if you guys had any suggestions on how to setup the fans to improve cooling. The graphics card I have (MSI GTX 1070 TI Gaming 8G) runs pretty hot in that case at about 75 degrees while gaming (with an overclock).

If you cant get the warm air out fast enough, might as well turn your top exhausts into intakes, and cool the warm air and force it out where ever it can. Or get an airflow focused case, or just let it run warm.. But summer is coming, and overclocks will be dialed back :D

What would turning the top exhausts into intakes do?

Cool your warm interior and add pressure to push the heat out. Maybe. You’d have to try. It doesn’t look like a big case so I could be wrong. Or just get stronger fans.

Unfortunately that actually made it worse :( Any other ideas ?

New fans or a new case.. or just leave it and let it cook.

any suggestions for a new case? I am either thinking of getting a much smaller case that is much easier to travel with (at the expense of cooling of course) or a much better airflow case.

I’m using a meshify c, it works pretty well. I like it enough to recommend one given the opportunity.

GPU temps are normal, if you are trying to improve those. The biggest thing to make things better would be to remove PSU shroud, which might be partially blocking airflow from getting to GPU.

 

But in reality. You have OC going on and load temps (or gaming temps?) are at 75C. Thats good temp all things considered. If your temps are 65-70C without OC, then only way to get better temps is to water cool the card.
