Triple fan or single fan on rack mount case?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello,
I am building a rack mount PC. I assembled on Asus H110M-A LGA1151 Micro ATX motherboard and , CPU : Core 15 6600k, RAM 8GB G.Skill 8GB DDR3, STORAGE : 240GB SanDisk SDSSDA-240G-G25, PSU Corsair RM 650W. I think about custom building the case from metal fabrication service.
Before I proceed, I want to clarify on using the cooling fan. Should I use a triple fan panel or a would a single fan be sufficient? Need advice.

The number of fans you use doesn't matter. You just need to move sufficient CFM.

A good rule of thumb is that you should move more air through the case (20% more?) that the CPU and GPU fans move.
Look up the CFM ratings of those fans and proceed accordingly.

Okay, Thanks for the input. Can you suggest me a cooling fan that is less noisy? I don't want that buzzing sound.
