NZXT H500(dumb) Negative to Positive Pressure

Unkindness
 Share

I keep changing my mind about the case I want to buy. The Latest one I'm looking at is a NZXT H500. Just wondering if anyone knows if I'd have any problems with heat management if I add 2x 140mm intakes to the front? I was looking at a Gamers Nexus review and Steve was saying it was set up for Negitive Pressure with 2x 120mm in the back so I would like to know if I push a tonne of air in, would it mess with the case's heat?

Cheers!

By 'set up for negative pressure', Steve's referring to the stock fan configuration with exhausts and no intakes. 

Adding 2x 140mm front intakes would be great and help bring fresh air in. If you would like recommendations, tell us where you're shopping and budget.

Shipping to Ireland with about €100 budgeted for the case. Down to the NZXT H500, Fractual Define C or Meshify C but open to ideas

Sorry for the late reply -- been very busy.

The Meshify C is hard to go wrong with. The Define C is the same thing with worse airflow.

PW2's are good: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B016XWZ56M/?tag=pcp0f-21

For a bit more, NF-P14S would be better: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00KHRGUNC/?tag=pcp0f-21

No bother buddy! I can say my Meshify C and my 2x Noctua NF-A14 PWM Chromax fans are one their way!
