how about (2) 120 mm front intake, (1) 120 mm side intake, (1) 120 mm back exhaust and (1) 200 mm top intake in slow rpm. you can just pop out some of the pcie slot covers to help with the exhaust.

also are you planning to get a fan controller? i dont see one on the parts that you picked.

i was thinking about that but ive never even looked at a fan controller so i have no clue what is quality, whats your opinion for a budget fan controller

Get a budget controller. Here is an example: www.sunbeamtech.com/PRODUCTS/Rheosmart/6.html
Or just go to newegg or someplace and sort by rating and pick the one you can afford.

If your target is quiet then get:

200mm front intake
200mm top exhaust
140mm side intake (50% rpm)
120mm rear exhaust

You can connect all these to a fan controller. This way you can control noise. Just be sure you purchase one with enough connections. Mine has 6 which gives me room to expand.

Edit: A nice quiet 200mm fan on a budget would be a cooler master megaflow. I have two in my 912 and they are virtually silent.

The 912 is a great case. I have my rig OCed to 4.7 with 2 crossfired 6870s and its nice and cool with the setup I showed.
