As for the number of fans, i dont see a problem with putting in as many as needed for cool temps. Just keep in mind that the case needs to have a flow of air, i.e. 3 intake and 3 exhaust or something like that.

My System Specs:
Raidmax Scorpio 868 with 420w psu
Intel Pentium-4 Processor 3.0ghz CPU
512K Cache, 800MHz FSB, Hyper Threading Ready
Cooler Master Jet 4
Albatron PX865PE PRO II i865PE Chipset
512 MB Dual Channel [256MB X2] DDR-400 PC3200
ATI Radeon 9600 Pro @ 438/243
Sound Blaster Live! 24 bit advanced HD
Maxtor 120 GB - 7200 RPM
Seagate 80 GB - 7200 RPM
16x DVD 52X32X52 cd-rw
Cooler Master Musketeer System Controller
Logitech MX Duo
Rock Chalk Jayhawk

it would be good also get quality over quantitiy. 2 good quiet fans, one intake, one exhaust will beat 4 noisy generic fans. i have a nice 400w psu that works as an exhaust, so i only have one nice intake with speed control working with the psu, and i've kept my ambience down with a big decrease in case temp.
