NZXT Phantom 530 Fan setup

SH_93

Hello,

If anyone here could help me out that would be great.

I build my first pc around a month ago, and now i want to change my fans.

at the moment i have the two stock fans, but i don't realy like the white color so i want to get rid of them.

There also seems to be quite some dust getting in there so i don't realy think the airflow is good at the moment.

The fan options the case has are:

Front (dust filter) 1x 200 or 2x 140 or 2x 120

Bottom (dust filter) 2x 120

Back 1x 140 or 1x 120

Top 2x 140 or 3x 120

Side 1x 140

So i figured the right place for the intakes would be the front, and the bottom.

Anyone willing to help me out with the amouth of fans i should get (i'm fine with filling all the slots haha)

Any help would be greatly apreciated.

At the moment i have the 200mm fan in the front and the 140mm in the back.

So i don't think 2x 140 in the front will make that much of a difference? so i would still have the dust problem?

So I have a 240, and in have every fan soot filled with a 120mm fan and the only the back fan and my gpu (reference cooler) for exaughst so I can have positive air pressure, but before I did that I had the top 2 and the lower front as intake fans and the rear as a exaughst works pretty well (for the picture there are fans where ever there is a blue light
