It looks like you have a decent setup for airflow for now... or is there something specific that you are after (i.e. the 2 x 180mm fans you mentioned).
If you could point me to some good tuts, then I might mod my case. I've never done it before so I'm not exactly stoked about doing it.

I just don't want to have hot air sitting in my case. I just want to be pushing it out the whole time, whichever way would be best for that.

As for the LEDs. I figured since the middle has a green 120mm fan. If I put an 80mm purple on each side, then I'd get a pretty cool effect (I had The Incredible Hulk in my mind). The blue 12" cathodes on top and bottom of the case would be hooked up to a sound module, controlling them to be on, off, and sound reactive. I just like flashy stuff.

then go no further (no offense). If you are not inclined to play doctor, then don't. No need to make something fun into a chore or a burden.

Then I think that the 120mm intake up front and the 230mm rear exhaust will do. You may need to swap the fans out for something with a little more cfm (Silverstone FM121), but then you will have more fan-noise.

You could also get a Scythe Kama Bay Cooler (not cutting required...mostl of the time), although I would recommend swapping the stock fan... I swear the cfm must .15... ... j/k, but it is really sad.

I think I'm gonna grab the Silverstone FM121. A little noise never hurt anyone.

Thanks for all your help, Syrillian!
