Case cooling: Could anyone help me plan out my fans for this case please?!

http://www.anandtech.com/show/5462/antec-three-hundred-two-stay-cool-budget-enthusiasts


I have this case, and need to plan some cooling options for it. I plan to have fans in all places possible, but just don't know how powerful they need to be in certain places across the place.

For example, I have heard that negative cooling is better for this case due to the fan facing downwards, do does this mean that I should have a higher CFM total exhausting than in-taking?

Also which fans should I buy?

In this case, there are:
2x 120mm fan mount FRONT
1x 120mm Antec TwoCool exhaust fan BACK
1x 140mm Antec TwoCool exhaust fan TOP
1x 120mm fan mount; SIDE
1x 120mm fan mount behind motherboard tray OTHER SIDE


Which fans should be put where?

Are there any fans that you could recommend to me?


I know I'm asking for a lot, however I really need help on this.


Thanks!
Dan.

  1. All you need for a cool system is a front intake, and a top and rear exhaust. More fans DOES NOT mean cooler.

    Negative vs. positive pressure doesn't matter like it used to. it is a non-concern.
  2. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Corsair-CO-9050006-WW-Series-Edition-Pressure/dp/B007RESFR2/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1386101765&sr=8-1&keywords=Corsair+quiet+edition


    So if I just got these, and stuck them on the front, will this be enough given that the case already has a rear exhaust and a top exhaust?
  3. Yes, that will be plenty of cooling.
