You dont want or need to fill out all the spots, just because they are there. The temps will not be affected much after a certain point.

What you want is just enough fans to bring enough airflow for your components.
What kind of an CPU cooler and GPU you have? Do you need both the hard drive cages installed?

nope, top cage was removed. im using MSI r9 290 gaming, all temps are 60-77c while gaming (depends on what game i played) and im using coolermaster V6GT cooler. I already installed my old fan from all casing, 2 at the top, 1 infront and at the back was a free fan from the casing. 4 slots empty right now, any good brand and model? i heard noctua gives the best performance

Noctuas are great yea, if you have the money go for NF-S12A PWM.
What i would do is place one front intake, one side intake with a aftermarket dust filter, one top exhaust and one rear exhaust and set the exhausts at 50% speed (if they are pwm).
This would create lots of airflow for your GPU and CPU with positive pressure (more air in than out) which reduces dust intake.
Also make sure your CPU cooler is feeding air towards the rear exhaust

PWM = Pulse Width Modification

PWM fans can automatically adjust the fans RPM's depending on the temperature.

Having pwm controlled fans would help with noise and dust
