The cfm isn't really a concern to me, it stays pretty cool in my house year round. What I mean by that is that there is typically always air that's cooler on the outside of my case, even in winter (or what passes for winter in texas lol).
I like them because they are essentially silent.
There isn't a lot of extremely hot air being dumped in my case that I can tell. There's more cool air coming in than what is exiting the case. Yes I understand that MIGHT cause hot spots in the case but I have yet to see any negative effects of it. The dust coming in every nook and cranny of negative pressure case is what I don't really like. I've tried it both ways, this way works best for me in my environment. the air my gpu is taking is is directly behind the side fan so it is essentially always cool. I frikkin love to layout and airflow of this case seriously.
But I do hate that the one with the all black interior wasn't available when I bought this one. Lol I was just thinking I shoulda painted it when I had everything out during the overhaul.
Well tbh your case isn't exactly full either. If you stuffed another GPU in there like you were planning you would notice things get REAL toasty. Seriously, I'm not talking out my *** or lying as I own 4 of those CM fans. They really do suck and when you need the performance from them they just don't have the punch.
I also have to call BS on not dumping heat from that rad into your case. I keep my room (when I can) at around 68f all the time. Stock my CPU when actually being stressed pushes a lot of heat through my H50. If you're OCed and priming you'll be dumping a ton of heat out of the back side of that rad regardless. If not you need a new fan pushing air through it. I have a Scythe Kaze limited on mine. I absolutely hate where my rad is mounted, but I have no choice. I wish I could just use my previous setup again but I can't. Not yet anyways.
Like I said though, if it works for you fine. I hope you don't need to ever upgrade those fans because it can be a pain to replace with similar sized other brand fans. I had to ghetto rig my Bitfenix in there.
