My new case (the acrillic one) is going to have six fans. But I will be going for quieter less powerful ones so it shouldn't be too noisy.

And also, GPU fans are for the video card right?
I dont have specific fans that attach to the HDDs. They are just in the case in the front-bottom area that blow air right past the HDDs.

I have 10 fans in my case. Whenever I turn it on, it sounds like a 747 engine. lol. Well at least they move a hudge amount of air.

Of course I dont run all the fans on a normal basis. I just use about 2-3 normally. I only turn on all 10 when Im at a LAN, and the room is 90+ deggrees. Those LAN rooms packed full of people and running computers always seem to heat up so fast no matter how many doors we

Most places that have huge computer labs, such as schools, colleges, government buildings, etc. have air conditioning in each room, so the computers dont bake up the room.

2 80mm case fans
1 120mm PSU fan
1 CPU fan
1 GPU fan
1 HDD fan (fan screwed to the top of an old floppy drive with a hole in it)

Makes a decent amount of noise, but you stop noticing it if you are in the room for a while.
