Hi.

I got this for a cheap HTPC build.

The front intake is not great, a small vented section on one side.

Could the top fan slots be used for intake or is that a no no?

With the front intake being next to useless, if I put a single 120mm at the top and an exhaust at the rear to keep neutral pressure, would that suffice or anything else worth trying?

Ryzen 3200G with no dedicated GPU and a single SSD.

Thank you.

Eh, I'd just put two fans in the front and call it, it'll be fine. That CPU won't produce a lot of heat, especially if all its doing is playing movies.

You could put intake fans on the top, but I doubt it'd make much difference.

I agree, you could run that setup in an itx case with nothing but the stock cpu fan and not have an issue. No reason to worry about it in that larger case
