2x 120mm is more than enough. 80mm can barely move some air, you'd have to crank 'em up pretty high in order to match a 120mm at low speed.

If any, I think you should try adding another 2x 120s and take the 80s out.

nah, I guess not but that case is fugly, try this case, the Thermaltake Shark Full Tower Aluminum Case Black, it's the same price as the aspire and the TT is a heck of a lot better.

I used to have a tower like yours (Antec SoHo) and it was the worst IMO, except back then it was 2x80mm fan for intake and 2x80mm for exhaust.

Get a TT Shark and this is what your rig will look like, cable managing wise:




The TT Shark has a huge side vent (see pic # 6): http://www.newegg.com/Product/ShowIm...ase+%2D+Retail which is why it keeps the components running cool w/o the need of a noisy side panel fan. And it comes with a 120mm fan intake and 120mm fan exhaust, as for cabling management, that aspire is not going to be good and I know because it looks exactly like my old Antec 1080AMG case and it didn't work that well for cable routing.

TTShark is the way to go and for the same price as the asprice.

I agree with Nasgul, don't get the Aspire. Get a good case, like the Shark, or the TT Armor, the Antec P180, or the CoolerMaster Stacker 810.
