I'm getting a new computer and don't know how to set the fans correctly.

The first way i thought was:
1x200mm front intake
1x200mm side intake
2x200m top exhaust
h80i rear exhaust.

My case is the HAF XM.

I'll replace the h80i fans with two corsair sp120 PWM, and the 200mm i'll probably get is the aerocool silent master.

Is this the way to go or i'm doing all wrong?

Dear configuration is right. You don't actually need side air intake. We call intake as Push and exhaust as Pull. You can go with two 120mm front intake fans or single 200m front intake fan.
You can use two 120mm fans or single 200mm fan for exhaust on top.

When it comes to fans in case I want them to be as much quiet as possible and still perform. My preference is with Corsair SP 120mm fans which comes in two editions (Quiet with static pressure and Performance) or Noctua series fans.

Your choice of Aerocool seems good as per their stated specs.

So good luck.

I'll buy the sp120 performance edition to use with the h80i.

Sorry for asking a lot of questions but how do i set the h80i to do push/pull?
the inside fan of h80i pulling from the case and the back fan pushing outside the case?

and if i set one as intake and one as exhaust on top, it'll be better? or theres no need to do it?

The inside fan or the fan facing the CPU will be in pull configuration as it will be pulling the hot air from the case and the outerside fan or the fan towards the back panel end of the case will be in push configuration or acting as exhaust fan.

Pl ensure that both fans on the top are in pull or exhaust configuration.
