Case: Thermaltake Core V31 CPU Cooler - Cryorig H7 with 120mm Thermaltake Riing fan Case Fans: Thermaltake Riing 12 x6; and Riing 14 x2

Current setup:
Intake - 3x Riing 12 in front
Intake - 2x Riing 12 at bottom-front and bottom-middle
Intake - 1x Riin 14 at top-front

Exhaust - 1x Riing 12 at rear
Exhaust - 1x Riing 14 at top-rear


^^^This is not my actual case, just a pic for illustration purposes...

The HDD cage is located at front bottom. I did have it mounted in the middle position, but noticed that it was blocking airflow from the front to the GPU (XFX RX 580 4GB). I also used to have a Riing 14 mounted at the top-middle as exhaust, but suspected that it was sucking out air from the front and bottom before it could be blown into the gpu, so I flipped to intake and placed at the front-top to push air behind the front fans and get it pushed to the GPU.

I'd appreciate any thoughts, criticisms, etc. Thanks in advance.

Thanks, Count Mike. I am wondering if there are ways to confirm how the air moving within the case. My XFX RX 580 gpu seems to run much hotter than my old R9 280x gpu, hence why I am fiddling with the fan placement.
