You don't have to buy the Fans, you could buy one and replace the 80mm Fans, with the 120mm one

So since this case Newegg.com - Rosewill R5717-P SL 120mm Fan ATX Mid Tower Computer Case withTool-Free kits - Computer Cases comes with a 120mm, just buy one 120mm for the side panel? I don't understand what you're saying, sorry. T^T
Isn't it more fans = better?

I've seen test that it proves it's best to just have 1 intake and 1 exhaust fan. A lot of people think it's better to have like 20 fans in a case, but all that does it mess up the airflow and keep the hot air inside the case.

I would though try to fill the empty spots where fans can go though just to make sure there is some decent airflow.

Video card $80

Case $35

RAM $20

Newegg.com - Rosewill RCX-Z775-LX 92mm Ball CPU Cooler - CPU Fans & Heatsinks



Shipping: $32

Tax: $37

Total: $520 after Mail in Rebate



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.
