Specs:

CPU: i7 4770k
Motherboard: Asus Maximus IV Hero
CPU Voltage: XFX Pro Series 750W
RAM: 16GB
OS: W7 Pro x64

I'm going to be overclocking this computer and I don't know much about case fans because I've always just bought a cheap $20 fan from MicroCenter or something and since I started overclocking my current computer, it's basically gone to hell. So I need to find some good fans but also quiet, so maybe a good mix.

More about : case fans

It might of been a good idea to also post your case details so we might have a clue about what fans you have in there.

And is the psu XDX or XFX?

The case comes with 4 fans - 2 x 120 at front, 1 x 120 rear, 1 x 140 led top. It also comes with a 3 step fan controller

Plus you'll have your cpu cooler fan

The mobo comes with a cpu fan header - plug the cpu cooler fan into it - What cooler are you using? Try Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO

And 3 chassis connectors - I'd plug the front 2 into one with a Y piece lead and each of the other 2 one each into each other fan header - read your mobo manual.

Or you can plug your case fans into the case fan controller - read your case manual

So the stock 4 should be enough? And the CM Hyper 212 EVO is the one I'm using
