I'm planning to buy Fractal Design Define R4 case and
Corsair H80i to replace my old antec 902 v1 case(or not).
I was wondering for setting up the h80i, where would be the best position for the fans in the case for better performance?
I might remove the top two sound damping materials for two fans but that's my 2nd option, cause I want to have the silent noise possible when gaming as well as better cooling..
So what would you guys recommend for this computer case?

I have the old Corsair H80. Recommends you to intake fresh air and disperse it in the case, case temps won't be that bad doing so, might raise a few degrees under really heavy CPU load in exchange for better CPU temperatures.
Just have some airflow coming and you'll be far from danger. The fans that come with the regular H80 sounds like a jet engine, the H80i being a little better. I strongly recommend you use a pair of Scythe Gentle Typhoons's in push-pull.
i agree with coca cola guy except fan choice... go with either noctua or corsair sp fans
You are better off with Noctua NH-D14 or Phanteks PH-TC14PE over an H80i
You don't need to swap the fans on them either, but if you wanted to, Thermalright TY-14 is your best bet.
Going to agree with AEO on this one. I have the H80 and were I to do over again I'd go with either of the two he suggested.
