You dont really need any extra fans, but do yourself a favor and get the H100i, not the H100.

Do yourself a favor and get an air cooler not a closed loop liquid cooler.

You do not really need any more fans.

Disagree, I went from air to a closed loop cooler and will never go back. Depends on your preference though.

The Phanteks PH-TC14PE_BK or the Noctua NH-D14. These will cool just as well as a closed loop liquid cooler and be MUCH quieter.

Alot of fans do not keep stuff cool. Correctly placed fans keep stuff cool. A front intake and a rear exhaust fan are all that is really needed.

Yeah, the rear fan should be an exhaust and the front should be an intake.
