Is this a good idea for a fan?

hqbreaker

I was planning on adding another fan on the green spot but I'm afraid it may cause issues with the other fans.  What do you guys think?

 

Edit:  Forgot to mention that the top green part uses 140mm fans.  The rest uses 120mm

Would be fine. How many fans do you have as intake?

 

I have one blowing are in the case in the front bottom and the rest are blowing out. form the side and back right now.  I was planning on adding one on the top for alittle extra CPU cooling.

Add the new fan to the front. Always want to have neutral/positive pressure :P

Depends on the rest of the system... If you have a GPU without a blower you may be starving it by pulling all the fresh air out the top.

Don't think there's any more room for another front fan sadly.

My GPU fans have it blowing down but its very close to the PSU.  I have the PSU blowing down and there is a bottom fan.  its about 2 inches away form the GPU.

You mean PSU sucking air in from the case or outside?

I guess, I only have one PSU fan.  I read places that it should be place down in most cases, especially when a GPU is near it.  Behind my PSU I have another fan blowing out.

that fan seems kinda useless tbh

Not really--a second exhaust is usually very impactful for cooling.

If you have a GPU without a blower you may be starving it by pulling all the fresh air out the top.

No, an exhaust fan at the the back of the case would only exhaust any air that has already been used to cool the graphics card or any other components.
