I was just posting cases that I have personally worked in. I am sure that the 300R is a good case since the 200R was great to work in. My only gripe is that the 300R is so close in layout to the 200R, that I think it is not worth the money, the only main difference that favors the 300R is the mesh screen up front and it fits a 140mm fan, but, my PC is in a 200R with two 120mm fans up front right now and is just as cool as it was in my HAF 912 with a 200mm fan up front. I was impressed that it still pulls a decent amount of air through the slits on the sides of the front panel, less dust as well.

The 300R is on sale though...

So I was thinking about getting the Corsair C70 in military green and then getting one of these fans to go along with it http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835181022 using the red ring to get this sort of look http://www.overclock.net/t/1270969/official-corsair-vengeance-c70-gaming-case-owner-club/460 sorry I don't know how to attach a photo but its the post by "B NEGATIVE" my only problem is the motherboard I want to get only has 3 system fan headers so will it work if I plug the fourth fan into the CPU_OPT header here is the link to the motherboard

You could just get some fan splitters and run two fans off of the MoBo headers or you could get a fan controller. I am also pretty sure that you can run more than two fans off of the MoBo headers, but I have never tried it, only read about it on OCN.
Amazon serch results for 3-pin fan splitter You can look through those and see if anything interests you. The CPU are usually four pin, but you can plug a three pin into them and it will run fine. The four pin is for the PWM where the MoBo changes the speed based on the temperature of the CPU. I use my fan controller for both fans on my heat sink and all the other fans in my case.

I just got some of these to run off of my fan controller, which I really like because it looks cool on the front and you can turn it down easily when you aren't doing anything too intensive on your PC and it will be darn near silent. NZXT Individually Sleeved 3-pin Y fan splitters

This is the fan controller that I have right now. With five splitters you could easily run ten fans off of it. NZXT Sentry Mesh Fan Controller

Also, those Corsair fans that you picked out are solid fans, they are good for intake and exhaust fans but you want something with a high static pressure for a heat sink or radiator, the Corsair SP120's are designed for that.
