Default cooling question

I'm building a computer with a soyo cx-5959 case which only has a 100mm fan receptable in the rear. I was wondering what size fan to put it 120mm or 92mm? Is it ok to oversize the fan or will there be space restrictions?
Also do you have any suggestions about other fan placement in that case.

Would it be worth getting a high speed fan that puts out 52 decibals with a max air flow being around 100?

why not look to water cooling if you are really that worried about it.
The noise creased is not worth it. with 1 100mm fan you should be fine for an exhaust fan. The instakes are really where you want the speed. Air Volume being moved by that one fan is fine. The High speed isn't going to help that much and will cause more nuisance than anything.

Am I the only one here that had no clue 100mmm fans EXIST? Are you sure its 100mm??

Anyway, 52db would drive you up the wall. They make converters for fans, and if 100mm is the true size, maybe just look for a 100 to 92 converter. Theres better options in 92mm
System specs? Lets just get down to it people:
