Do I need more fans?

Hi! I'll be getting a NZXT H630 because it's supposed to be a quiet case. However, it only comes with two fans. I was wondering if I should get more, because there's plenty of space and installation points. I'll have a i7 4770 and an Asus GTX780 generating heat in there.

There are two possible outcomes, I guess: a) more fans will make more noise; b) more fans will cool better, thus allowing the fans to spin slower and make LESS noise

Does anyone have any experience of which is true? Do you have another case or extra fans you would recommend? I'm thinking of getting Nanoxia DS 140 mm fans if I need them.

  1. Get some high quality fans and you will be fine, get one on the side as well. Its best to always stay cool even if you hear a fan. Would you rather it have a shorter life or have a longer life with a possiblity of some noise.

    Well I wouldn't want it to break down in the first couple of years, but I live in a loft so during the night, I would like it to be as silent as possible. I'm also looking into the Nanoxia DS1 right now, it seems to have some good reviews
  3. Yeah just make sure you do not buy cheap fans, buy high quality. You will be fine trust me ^_^.

    $20-25 for a Nanoxia 140mm fan on Amazon. Is that a quality product?

    You would need to provide a link as there are many.
    This maybe what you are refering to and this one seems to be a very nice fan for a great price
