So i just ordered parts for a new build:
Case: NZXT Phantom 410
CPU: Intel Core i5-4670k 3.0GHz 6mb SK1150
RAM: Gskill Ripjaws X DDR3- 1600MHz 2X4gb
Motherboard: Asus Z87-A
PSU: XFX 750w
Disk burner: Samsung DVD-RW 24x Sata
HDD: Western Digital Green 1TB Sata III 64 MB
SDD: Samsung evo 840 120gb
GPU: GTX770 MSI twinfrozr 4gb vram edition
CPU COOLER: Hyper 212 EVO from coolermaster
Also have a USB Stick wifi connector to put in there
I will overclock the CPU and the GPU but only in some months, this is mostly a gaming build so i am concerned with the Temps and dust

From what i have heard this case comes with 1X 140mm fan and 2X 120mm fan i was thinking of putting an intake fan on the front, remove the middle drive bay since ill only use 1SSD +1HDD to improve airflow, put a Fan at the top where its closest to the front also as intake and put an exhaust fan at the back, with the CPU cooler fan pointing in that direction for added exhaust.
So my doubts are:
-Is this an efficient cooling setup?
-I will be getting new fans to put on the front at top for added cold air intake, how soon should i get them? do i need to get them before i overclock?
-Will this fill the inside of my case with dust? because this case doesnt come with fan filters, do i need to get them?

Thanks in advance :) ) all other information would be appreciated :) )

I own the Phantom 410 and pretty much exact build as you. I only have the fans that arrive with the case and so far it has been efficient enough for me. Since you said you are going to OC in the future, maybe adding 1/2 more fans will help you out. I clean the inside of my pc maybe once a month or even longer (I don't seem to attract much dust). This all depends on the environment your computer is on.

And the dust cleaning is it a pain in the ass? Is it worth getting dust filters? (I am not even sure they fit there)
