1) Is there a recommended fan setup for the case?
2) What model of Noctua fans should I get for the case?

I personally opted for the same model fans included in the Define R4, which are 140mm fans. I'd go with the Noctua NF-P14-FLX 140mm Ultra Quiet Cooling Fan 750-1200 RPM fans. If you don't mind spending $10 extra to have lower RPM fan speeds, go for it!
Basically this. Though I have my config as two front intake, and just a single fan exhausting air in the rear, which I will probably cut out the rear grill mesh soon as I can add that one fan to top exhaust and let that vent the air naturally. If you want more info on fan setups and what not, ask doyll. He really knows his stuff. And as for the fans, NF-A14 FLX is what I recommend. I'd just get the PWM fans or if you don't care, just get the regular non PWM ones.
