Default Re: Positive, Negative or Equal Airflow?

One problem, one of the fans that comes with the case is in the default "back" exhaust position. Would having 1 fan on the back, and one on the top work?

The 200r is made for equal or negative airflow by design. Bottom and front intake + rear and top exhaust with matching fans gives a good equal airflow. Having drive cages restrict flow in the middle makes it negative. Really it doesn't matter much. Just toss some fans in there and make sure your flow is decent and call it a day.
