Hello!
I've recently built a PC with R5 3600 and 5600XT. Originally I had the Cooler Master MasterBox MB600L -case, but I switched to Corsair Carbide 110R. CPU cooler is Arctic Liquid Freezer II 120
Here's my fan setup;

(Sorry, imgur doesn't work or probably I don't know how to use it)
What do you think? Would you change anything?
 
It's exhaust


The case has max. GPU length of 330mm and my 5600XT is 303mm so there isn't a lot of room between the GPU and the fan. Is that a problem?
It’s not a problem. Keep an eye on the gpu temperatures but I expect it will be ok. More fresh air at the bottom may have helped the gpu but is probably not essential. I’d play with the speed of the bottom fan while running gpu benchmarks and see if there is much difference in gpu temperature between max and 50% fan speed.

Looks good just can't see if radiator is intake or exhaust.

Agree, looks good. I’d be tempted to put another fan at the front middle. That bottom fan is the only one feeding the gpu and half it’s airflow is going to go under the psu cover.
