variathus, put 1 x 140 in the bottom intake, 2 x 140 on the side as intake. those combined with the front 2 x 120 intake and the rear 140 exhaust will be plenty of airflow. positive pressure on the wee little bit side.
no fans in the top will just let the hot air be pushed out by the intake fans.
this is just MY OPINION. but i think its a very good idea

More fans the better? I'm on water with fans running exhaust through radiators out the top and back. one fan at the bottom of the HDD cage along with the two stock fans at the front pushing air in. The mesh is open, no fans on it.

Got my case today and it is better than i expected. Im really happy with my choice. Got two doubts:

Shouldnt i receive some screws and stuff like that with case? I would swear that i saw that in a youtube review. Also, wich fans would match the sotck fans colour?
