  1. Best answer
    As long as you've got one fan in front for intake, and one fan in the back as exhaust, you don't really absolutely need anything more than that. If you want, you could get a side intake fan and some exhaust fans at the top.

    Any reliable brands?
  3. Corsair's fans look fairly decent. Cooler master's sickle flow also looks fairly nice. If you already have stock fans, then you don't need to change the fans.
  4. Noctua do good ones, so do coolermaster
