    Question What would the likely effect be...

    So I've just ordered a Meshify C with 3950X in it, with stock fans. What would be the likely effect (i.e. noise increase and CPU temp under load) be if I added 2 Noctua NF-P12 REDUX PWM fans as front intakes? What would be the likely effect if I also added another 2 as exhaust fants on the roof?
