4000D Airflow Fan Setup

have a new 4000D Airflow case and looking to get recommendations on case fan setups. I had planned to get additional fans after the initial purchase and i could look at the case. Using the system for virtualization, AI development workloads and gaming. Currently running with only the 2 default case fans and side panel removed for cooling.

 

System build:

i9-11900K Air cooler used

RTX-3090 FTW3

Asus ROG Strix Z590E

 

Questions

1. 2 x 140 fans on the front vs 3 X 120?

2. Top Fan(s) are they worth it?

   2a.  If yes same as question 1

   2b.  Alignment of Fans on top all in take or all exhaust or front 1or 2 intake and rear exhaust?

3. Recommended brand? I don't care about RGB

 

What do people have and what works well?

are you using an aio for the cpu or tower cooler? if aio i put it on the top as exhaust and can have the back fan exhaust and front intake .

 

if you have a tower cooler i would not add any fans to the top only the back exhaust and front intake. if gpu temps still to hi passably add a fan to the back top as exhaust.

 

3x 120mm push more air but 2x 140mm should be quieter so up to you i guess.

 

as for what fans well there's a few just depends on how much you want to spend i guess.

Thank you for the input

I have a tower cooler for the CPU.

I will also look into the gentle typhoons have not looked at those. I also like the idea of skipping the top fan on first go around and then determine if it is needed.
