yeah, work on the english...

anyway, as far as your quieting options go it would help to know what kind of system you have. Is it a custom built pc? If so, what motherboard, many nice motherboards have software that can adjust fan speeds automatically, there is also general software avaliable to do this IF your motherboard can support it.

As far as new fans, I recommend quiet fans, ie: 28 db or less at full RPM's

im not going to bother about the control panels i may get lights but im deffenatly going to put 4 80mm fans in, 2 at the back, 2 at the front for circulation. the 2 fans at the front should be forcing air in while the 2 at the back forcing air out am i right?

Bigger is better in my book. I'm talking about fans. In both of my midtowers, I cut two 120mm holes on the side of the case with a dremel but wouldnt do it again (too much work). 120mm fans move a heck of alot move air per dB. You can buy 80mm to 120mm fan adapters. I'm using two in my new computer build. I've installed 92mm fans in 80mm drive cages without modifications. 92mm can be installed in place of 80mm most of the time with modds.
