Hello, I got the Storm Scout 2 and I'm gonna buy some fans for it. I was thinking about buying the Corsair's SP120 because of the mesh this case has on the top:

You think the AF120 would be the same, or would them be better?
Would you recommend another manufacturer, or is Corsair ok?

What is your budget?
$10 ish then get GeLID Silent 12s. If you can get the SP120 (Static Pressure) or the AF10 (Air Flow) for $15 then it's a steal, kind of. $20 to $25 you can get yourself a Noctua or Be Quiet!

I'm gonna fill every single place where i can put a fan for maximum cooling (I've had some nasty experiences due to bad cooling), that means i'm buying 7 fans (H80i will use one spot). I guess something between 10$~15$ per fan would be ok.
Amazon has the SP120 and the AF120 on 14.99 or 27.99 for two of them.

But would the SP perform better over the AF for pushing air outside the case through the mesh?

The mesh shouldn't be a problem. If there are restrictions in front of the fans such as a hard drive cage then you might opt for a SP series for that specific spot. $15 SP/AFs are cheap.
