    So i am having trouble with my components staying cool. I only have the two case fans running but i am getting two more fans tomorrow. The other problem is that i only have 2 headers on my motherboard which is a ASUS M5A78L-M/USB3 My GPU is H270QM2G2M Radeon R9 270 and this is my case CORSAIR CARBIDE 200R ATX. I have a splitter than can connect to 4 fans so i have two connected right now and was going to connect the other two tomorrow when the fans get here but i was reading online and idk if that is such a good idea anymore. Can someone let me know how to keep my gpu cool? And if it's safe to connect 4 fans to one header. I'm new to this so bare with me

    Do you have good circulation of air around your case including the bottom portion where your power supply is at (I am not sure how exactly your power supply might be installed).

    Idk what IS good circulation is the thing :l My power supply is at the bottom and my gpu is pretty much right next to it. One fan is in the front of the case and one in the back but the one in front doesn't seem to do much

    Is your computer placed on a carpet in your room or any other place where there is carpet?

    What I mean of good air circulation is that if nothing is blocking the vents for your computer. That you have some space around your computer for air to flow into your computer.

    the corsair pulls air in from 2 "smallish" front SIDE vents, which may need a strong fan(s) .... high rpm ..... to cool your internal components

    Yeah my computer is in a very good spot not on carpet or anything. I have a computer desk with all open sides so it get svery good air flow from outside of the case and my power supply fan is facing up towards my gpu. Which is how i thought it was supposed to face in the case. I'll show a pic of the inside

    Did you built this computer?

    I think your case has a ventilation screen on the bottom of the case. Have you tried placing the power supply fan facing downwards.
