White orange and red it comes in. Idk, I just liked the red one. The issue I'm having is that despite 2 120mm and 1 140mm in the front, no air comes in because of the restrictive front panel, so I have to mod it and see if I can get it to work better. GPU temps shot up to 78c. When I took just the front panel off, it was at 69C

Man, with the side cover and front panel off, gpu runs at 64c. With it all on, it's hitting 75c at full load. I need to put seperators between the fan mount and the actual fan to avoid choking the fans. Idk how tho. I ended up taking the foam out of the front panel to have more airflow, noise didn't increase much at all.

Possibly some rubber washers?

That front panel is choking your airflow. The Corsair 750D has the same issue. There is a huge thread on that very subject over on the Corsair forums; Corsair is currently designing a new front panel to correct the problem. There is a video out that uses a candle to show how much more airflow the 750D has without its front panel installed.

A few things you can try:

1. Removing the front panel to see what effect that has on temps. If that helps, modding the front panel may be in order.

2. If it isn't already, make the rear fan for the radiator an intake instead of an exhaust. That may mitigate the airflow restriction of the front. It will also bring air cooler than the inside of the case through the radiator. One can always add a filter to the rear of the case if dust is an issue. Also, make sure that fan is a high quality high static pressure fan. Adding a second fan for push-pull operation might help some more (I wouldn't hold my breath on that one).

3. Reversing one or more of the top fans might help with airflow (that one is a bit iffy though). Closing off the open space in front of the top fans may also help a bit (that one has a better chance of making a difference).

I also forgot to add you could try Corsair sp120 or 140 fans

Corsair does make some 140mm case fans (which are airflow fans) but they don't make an SP140. The only static pressure fan Corsair makes is the SP120 (pity, that).
