I got the h500p case and I really like the testing you guys did. The issue is that I bought 2 more 200mm fans for the looks of it but I also have a 280mm radiator. I would had love to see the test done with 4 200mm fans. I have no idea if it would be better having the 4 fans and the 280mm going in or just put the 280mm as exhaust and just call it day.

One 200mm fan would be fine. 4 is redundant. More fans might make 1 or 2C difference.

I had to go with the 2 in front stock configuration because my gpu temps were high if I put the the Radiator in front with the 4 fans. The problems I have now is that my case is negative pressure. While beneficial, I do live in a dusty environment so I prefer to have positive pressure. I get positive pressure if I open the front panel but negative if it is closed. I am going to try to put two 120mm fans behind the 200mm ones in hope of creating positive pressure because I see no other way to do it.

What's your build?

What fans are located where?

What radiators are mounted where?

You could always lower the exhaust fans' speed to get a "balanced" airflow.

Having a 200>Radiator>2x140 sandwich isn't optimal, but as long as the 200 don't end up fighting or throttling the 140 (too much), it should be alright.

You could mount the 280 on the top/exhaust and run the 200 behind it on very low RPM while running the front/intake at high/max rpm. That would at least give you positive pressure.

A concern would be the top (front) fan sucking the cool air directly out of the case, therefore kinda negating the front top fan.

With the Radiator in front, that wouldn't be as much of a problem (as the top fan is now dumping hot air), but as you mentioned, GPU temps will suffer and the top rear fan propably ends up sucking air in from the rear, unfiltered.

You could try something that I did and mount a rear intake fan + filter, to even out pressure and ensure it's filtered.

But as raw performance is concerned, only 2x200 front and 2x140/rad top (no 200) would probably be the best.
