I have a question about the Fractal Design Meshify S2 case...I'm using 5 140mm case fans- 3 front intake, 1 rear exhaust and 1 top exhaust...I started building my new system and was wondering about adding a bottom 140mm intake fan...but when I place it inside the PSU shroud it seems to be in a weird position...if I place it in the bottom front position then it's literally right in front of my 3rd front intake fan...won't that block the air from my front fan and divert it up?...if I place it in the 2nd position in the bottom it's right up against my PSU and I'm worried that the PSU wires might get caught in the fans

how are people placing the bottom intake fan?...any worries about it interfering with the front intake fan airflow?

Too many fans is overkill. 3 intake 140's is more than enough, assuming they're actually getting fed air.

I'm fine with 3x front intake, especially with a psu shroud, 1 exhaust.
If you were trying to run your fans at a lower rpm I could see needing a top exhaust to help, but i'd want to log my results for effect
