Default Fans

Im building a computer, and its my first one. What is the recommended number of fans for a normal non-overclocked computer that may be on all night?

Enough to have an effective intake and exhaust system running through your case. It varies really. I'd reccomend atleast two. Four (not including heatsink, video card etc.) at the most since your not overclocking...

Ok thanks. I have an extra 80 mm fan lying around, so I'll use that as intake in addition to the exaust fan that comes on the side. I dont have the case yet, but im expecting it for christmas, and if I dont get it I'll buy it myself.

I suggest One 120mm Fan for Intake and One 120mm Fan for Exaust. For simple air flow.

Now that I think about it i think it is 120 mm, but the case only has one fan slot that will fit that, and 1 80 mm fan slot on the side.
