Default Buying new parts tonight need to know if they are 100% compatable.

I made a thread earlier about what parts to get but the thread is dead so thats why I decided to just make a new one. Here are the parts I'm getting.


Motherboard: http://tinyurl.com/ylaetl
RAM: http://tinyurl.com/yavhen
Processor: http://tinyurl.com/fho9a
Video Card: http://tinyurl.com/yhorj8
Power Supply: http://tinyurl.com/daebz
Hard Drive: http://tinyurl.com/nxuvq
Case: http://tinyurl.com/ajoly

One of my biggest concerns is that the case has 2 intake fans and no exhaust, I could easily change it or is it good how it is? And the biggest concern about the case is that if I close the front how will the front fan get air? Is there an opening I'm not seeing or something? In one of the reviews someone mentioned it pops off, but I don't really wanna pop it on and off all the time. Also are there more openings in the case for extra fans if I ever decide I need some? The main reason I made this thread though is to make 100% sure that the parts are compatable and bring out the full capabilities of each part. Please look at every detail to make sure it is compatable. I researched a lot and I feel that they are compatable but I need to be 100% sure before such a big purchase, this is a lot of money for me... thanks

The case comes with 1 120mm intake fan / 1 120mm out / and a 90mm in the window (if you get the window)

Is the Soprano's front fan useless if the front plastic case is closed? I don't see any openings on the case to let air pass thru the closed front piece. Please someone tell me if this cases front fan is useless unless the front is open all the time because I don't want it open a lot. I'm waiting on buying all the parts just because of this one question I have. Also the fan looks like I can easily just change the rear fan to exhaust, is this corrent?

The rear fan is always exhaust I think.

Font blows inward, side blows inward, back blows outward.

The front has vents. So the air comes in fine. The rear fan is an exhaust fan.

On newegg it says the rear fan is for intake.

Its most likely a typo. I've used the case for a build a while ago.
