Is this case going to be cool enough?

Hello!

I get got my case for my first computer build (http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1m8DX), and I have 3 questions:

#1 Is this case going to be cool enough with only 2 fans (the stock ones it comes with)? I plan on o.c. my cpu about 20%-ish, but I do have a heat sink for it.

#2 Should I rearrange the fans to different spots?

#3 Which way are the fans in taking air and pushing out air? (so I know what way to face my cpu heat sink fan). Is there an easy way to tell?


Here are some pictures for reference:

    yeah thats a pretty cool looking case. oh you were talking about airflow. well, buy some case fans for the front and buy one for the side panel and you should be good to go.
  2. top half outlet, bottom half intake. That case looks cool.
  3. Looks like a fine case but I would add the two optional front panel 120mm fans as intake and leave the two in the back and top as exhaust.
  4. i wish i had that case. :(
  5. Thanks for your answers guys!!! Would 2 of these fans be enough? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835426016
  6. they should be, but i think if you have too many hard drives in the way you wont get that much airflow.

    personally i would suggest these. they are quiet and they push a ton a of air.
