I'm just about to build my very first build and I'd like to get better aftermarket fans for my case with brighter LED lights. I don't know exactly how fans work in cases as I'm still in the early steps of my computer knowledge.

I have a FX-8320 w/ M5A99FX, 8GB RAM, HD 7770 GPU, 2TB HDD and 650W PSU
*Video Editing/Game Recording
*Overclock & Crossfire not all that important yet

Case is a NZXT Guardian 921

or AZZA Spartan not sure which yet

So what fans would you guys suggest that are good brands that are REALLY BRIGHT or would it be better to get the tower with liquid cooling support and which would you guys prefer?

Also, are there LED light kits that can be placed in your case? How do those work if so?

I really appreciate the help
Thanks :)

For better Air flow with great looks i would go with a NZXT CA-PH410-R1 Phantom 410 especially the red one

Features are intresting like
• Clearance for top 240mm dual radiator for water cooling solutions
• Adjustable interior pivot 120mm/140mm fan slot for directional air flow
• Removable HDD cage to allow more room for extended video cards
• Innovative right mounted HDD rails for easy hard drive replacement
• Single 120mm/140mm side fan with acrylic window for interior viewing and cooling
• Front Internal 2x USB 3.0 headers, 2x USB 2.0, audio and microphone input
• 30W 3-step fan control for setting up your system for silence or performance
• Wire management support up to 25mm space for easy cable management
• Screw-less 5.25” and HDD trays that secures 2.5” SSD
• Cooling capability of up to eight fans (2x 120mm and 1x 140mm LED fan included)
