Hi Fellow Computer enthusiasts! My case is the Corsair 750D and I am struggling to decidewith which fans to use and and to arrange them.

This is what I currently have in mind:

2 140's in the front < intake
2 140's in the top < exhaust
1 140 in the rear exhaust. < exhaust

All fans will be Noctua NF-A14 Industrial PPC 2000 PWM 140mm <-- are these overkill? do they make sense to put in the front?

All fans will be conencted to a fan controller, probably this one:
NZXT Sentry MIX2

Does this setup make sense? To be honest I feel overhwelmed by of the different case fans are available. If you can help me out I'd be very appreciative. Thanks good.gif

Must be some beastly computer to spend $200 on fans  

 

Your air flow setup makes perfect sense to me.

Smaller fans and slower speeds are important to keep sound levels and vibration below that of a 747.  Working with some posterboard you can create air paths to cool the vital areas and exhaust the hot air.  Closing off the vents in the power supply case except for one to the outside for intake and let the fan in the power supply cool just the P/S without  disturbing the case cooling.  Dressing cables and such out of the air paths will help too.
