Hi everyone!
Quick question for you all. I just purchased a Corsair 300r Case and it comes with 2 stock fans, one in the front and one in the back. It has additional spots for more on the roof and the side, unfortunately my CPU cooler is taking all the room (CM Hyper 212 Evo). I know I can fit an additional one up front if needed. Do I need to purchase additional fans or will I be fine with my current setup? If I do/should, which fans should I purchase?

Here is my current setup.

two things if you plan to overclock i would get an additional 50-100 watts on your psu which leads me to the case should get more. i like akasa fans myself but what ever you pick the higher the rpms...the more airflow (and unforunately noise) you will get....i'll be back with some suggestions
