[Question] Corsair 280x Fan/AIO configuration


Hello members ,

Currently, I have a B450M Steel Legend motherboard from Asrock and the Corsair 280x case. I plan on getting an AIO and some fans, what fan and aio configuration/placement would be optimal for this situation?

Front intake, top exhaust.
As for the AIO, pick your position; there’s a tradeoff regardless.
Front mounted AIO: cooler cpu temps, warmer gpu temps
Top mounted AIO: warmer cpu temps, cooler gpu temps
Bottom: if you put any fans/rads here, it’s just for aesthetics. Airflow through here is very poor.
