Default cooling

will the computer i'm building (see below) still work with 3 case fans? 1x120 in the front, 1x120 in the back and 1x90 on the side . . .

if not, then i'll go with the other thermaltake cases (5 fans)

what heatsink and fan? if stock i would get 5 fam case, if not stock ( better one ), hmm i woudl still get 5 fan case. the heat sink will reduce the heat, but u need fans to get it out of the pc to ventilate it, 3 fans may not be enough.
