I cannot decide between using only one 120mm rear fan that comes with the case

OR

getting 120mm and 80mm side fans.

I want to at least get the 80mm one so the CPU HSF's airflow will definitely go out the case.

Any suggestions on cheap 120mm and 80mm fans with least noise as possible?

Maybe something like Newegg.com - HIPER HFF-1N12N 120mm Transparent Case Fan - Case Fans.

Thank you for reading.

I am open to any suggestions.

Looks good. You shouldn't need a side fan with that cpu cooler but a front fan would be a good idea.

It looks like there is a place in front of the hard drive bays.

Is the fan facing out of the case or inside? What would be the point if it is pointing inside?
