from what you are saying you have 5 total intake and 2 total outtake, which means your case will be trying to suck in over 2 times the air it is putting out, resulting in a loss of quality airflow due to buildup. generally as a rule of thumb you should make the intake and exhaust as even as possible so that air can flow freely, in your case your total fans is odd, so i would have the 4 side fans intake and the rest exhaust so that the large intake gets distributed to the top/front/rear of the case

Well, generally you'd want to go with more outtake than intake CFM because it encourages stronger airflow. With more outtake CFM, a case is called a negative pressure case and generally the only drawback to these would be needing additional air going in from a grille or vent which creates more dust but doesnt have obstructed airflow from too much air in the case.

That will work fine as long as you buy some low flow fans for the front and side and some high flow fans for the exhaust.

The reason is, as mentioned above, that you don't want to have way more intake power than exhaust. I try to keep the case pressure slightly positive because it help prevent dust from being sucked in through cracks and settling, and that is done by having slightly more intake than exhaust. But not too much

Thanx guys

well i got 4 x yate loon D12SL-12 blue LED (38.5 cfm, 25.4 dBA) 120mm

2 x 120mm Scythe SFF21F S-FLEX™ Case Fan (63.7 CFM/28 dBA)

I was thinkin abt 4 yate loons on the side panel- intake.......n the scythe s-flex for exhaust- rear and top.

Front intake- m gonna hav the fan dat comes wid the stacker 830.

I got no idea abt the rear exhaust fan dat comes wid the case....its a 120mm..coolermaster ..donno abt the CFM......m plannin on replacin it wid my scythe s-flex 63.7 CFM.....wut say?

To keep the intake-exhaust ratio more even.....i was thinkin abt 4:3......4 intakes....n 3 exhaust....dat wud b more even. 1 front intake(stock).....3 side intake(yate loons)....1 side exhaust above the RAM (yate loon)......1 rear exhaust(scythe).....1 top exhaust(scythe)......so dats 4:3....ur opinion?

CHEERS.
