I have the Cooler Master HAF 912 plus case. My pc specs are:
  • 9900KS
  • Dark rock pro 4
  • 3080 ti aorus master
  • Z390 aorus master
  • 3600 Mhz ram
  • 970 Evo plus SSD
what is the optimal fan setup in this case for the best cooling? Currently this is my setup:

Intake:
  • Intake front: 200mm Cooler master fan
  • Intake side: 140mm Corsair fan
Exhaust:
  • exhaust back: 140mm case fan
  • exhaust top: 2x 120mm Corsair fans
does this setup provide optimal airflow? I was wondering if the side fan should be intake or exhaust considering i have a open air GPU.

Thanks
 
your setup is the best option with what you have.
it may be a bit quieter also using a 200mm as top exhaust but as long as you have fans with high airflow and low dBA it should be fine as it is.

you may get better CPU temperatures using two fans on the Dark Rock Pro 4 but unless you're noticing any higher than average temperatures i wouldn't bother changing anything.
