Hello Tom's Hardware, this question is aimed at those of you who own/are knowledgeable about Coolermaster Cosmos ii cases. I see that it supports 10 fans total (5 already included I believe) and I'd like to fill out the fan slots as soon as I get it built. I looked at the description of the case and I wasn't entirely clear on which fans are included, and which I need to order.

So my question is: What fans do I need to order to fill up all the remaining slots?

My philosophy is "Less is more". It comes with 5 already. Only add more if you actually need them.

My philosophy is "more is more" (as is already probably evident from my case selection)

I see where you're coming from, but I don't have a problem putting out the extra bit of cash even if only for the satisfaction of knowing that the slots have been maxed out. (and hopefully a slight temperature difference). The little bit of extra noise or cost of the fans is essentially a non-issue.

Top: 120mm black fan x 1, 1200 RPM, 17 dBA
(or 200mm fan x 1 / 140mm fan x 2 / 120mm fan x 3)
Front: 200mm LED fan x 1, 700 RPM, 19 dBA(or 120/140mm fan x 1)
Rear: 140mm fan x 1, 1200 RPM, 19 dBA
Side: 120mm fan x 2 (optional)
HDD: Mid.HDD: 120x25mm fan x 1 (optional);
Bottom HDD: 120mm fan x 2, 1200 RPM, 17 dBA

The only optional fans are 2 side panel fans and 1 Mid.HDD fan. To put more fans elsewhere you have to replace existing fans with more smaller fans. I would wait for your case to arrive and then decide how to go from there. You may find that fan replacement will take away from the cooling and/or asthetics.

Excellent, thank you! I knew that I must have been reading it wrong. That's exactly what I needed to know.
