I have a Cooler Master HAF 912 and a Corsair H60. I have two 120mm fan in the front pulling air in, and one 120mm on the top pulling air out and one 80mm on the side pulling air in, and i have the radiator if the H60 in the rear pulling air in, idk if thats a good airflow thing

as long as your temp are good it’s fine it can be good having more fans pulling air in than out because it means you get compression in the case and that decreases the amount of dust build up in your case.

i have just looked and you graphics card can handle around 100'C to keep it on the safe side i would try and keep it below 90'C and i would be suprised if it got that hot.

you said that you have bf3, with the right settings that has "supreme graphics" but if you want to test the temps of your system run some bench mark prgrams like furr mark or 3d mark11

If you want to know if your airflow is good inside your case, there is a simple little test.

Dust everything out - leave no dust anywhere inside your PC. Make is shine.

Then, use your PC for 5 days.

Open your case back up. If you have dust on the major components, you have airflow. The more dust, the better the airflow.

Cheers!

Shouldn't the fans be pushing air OUT over your radiator from the H60?

It takes the heat from the CPU and disperses it across the metal. Wouldn't you want to push air out over that so you're not pulling in heated air?

I'm looking to get an H60 so any help would be great!
