Question Maybe I'm missing something...

I'm lookng at buying this case, but I don't get something...

It says there are 3 80mm fans. I only see 2 places for a fan... what am I missing?

Thanks!

Looks like one in the side, one in the back, and possibly one in the front.

I'm willing to bet that there is a mount on the front. I have yet get a case that didn't have a front mount. Then again, I just bought an acrylic case that came with 5 fans. There is only room to mount 4... that's okay though. I accidently broke one of them.

So yeah, I'd say there is room to mount 3 fans.

Would the one in the front be accessing the outside of the front? Or would it just circulate air?

Thanks!

well, in theory front fans are supposed to help draw air in, but mine tends to circulate the air around my hard disks. It's good to have anyway.

Will 3 fans be too noisy?

it does tend to be a bit noisy but not unbearable.

i've got 2 80mm fans on the back as exhaust.

1 80mm on side as intake

1 120mm in front as intake.

the noise that i hear mostly comes from my 500watt PSU which has 2 fans of it's own on it, but also comes w/ a knob to adjust it.

it does stay quite cool tho.
