Case cooling

http://files.joako.com/inside-full1.jpg

First of all, that's not my case. It's my friend's case. I have the same case but I don't have a pic of my case so I have to use his pic.

Blue = cool air
Red = Hot air
green = my second PSU (my friend doens't have 2 PSU, so I have to draw it)
purple = space between the lower part of my case and the upper part of my case

3 120mm delta 107cfm fan on top of my case and another 3 on the bottom of my case.
Can the hot air move from the lower part to the upper part through the purple space? Or is that space too "tight"??

It will move through there, its not as messy as many peoples cases, 6X120mm fans is pretty extreme! You could test how restricted it is by unplugging everything up top and tucking the cables well out of the way, there should be much difference in airflow, but if there is, just work out a new routing for the cables!

Random Nonsense: actually they are very quite Don't you think the space between the first optical drive and the enlight PSU is too 'tight'?

well, pull the drive out too to test! there isnt really much room for improvement unless you ditch your 2nd PSU and go with a single more powerful one...

with the PSU blowing out as well you do have 5 fans at the top, that should be plenty of airflow.

It might help to be very carefull with routing IDE cables and power cables through the hole, try to keep is as neat as you can.

Dont all those fans make you deaf ?
