Okay so I'm getting 8 of these fans http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... I might be getting 10 later on.

Then when I get the fans I will be getting these filters http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... . I know the restrict airflow and all, but it has 110.31 CFM! for only 8 dollars.

Now the real questions. Does this PSU have enough connectors for 12 fans http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... ?, if not will it have enough for 10?, if not then how about 8?

Also does my motherboard have enough things for it http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... . Thanks a bunch in advance. :D 

P.S. My case is a HAF 922.

No it doesn't that's why you keep daisy changing those molex connectors :) . Or get creative and make youself one bigger octopus one.
BTw how are you fitting 8 into it?

Besides what came with the case I was only able to fit 3 more. One below next to psu, a 200mm on side case and another 120mm on my hsf. I suppose you could do the two 120s vs one 200mm but it'll be that much louder at full speed. Anyway post a pic when you get them.

ok, and how many fans can my motherboard, and PSU support? the way i would be doing it is putting 4 of them on the side, one on the bottem, 3 on top one in the rear (take out the top and rear), and also some on the hdd drives.

Sure

I think one for cpu, and probably 3 case fans. (system...case.....)
Remember put the intake fans on the mobo connectors and exhaust on molex.

I have that slipstream. I am not totally sure how you are going to cope with noise that these things make. I have 2, but still, 8?

By my estimation, the case fits 7 fans

http://www.coolermaster-usa.com/product.php?category_id...
Front: 200 mm fan x 1 (can be swap for 120 / 140 mm fan x 1)
Top: 200 mm fan x 1 (can be swap to 120 mm fan x 2 )
Rear: 120 mm fan x 1
Bottom: 120 / 140 mm fan x 1 (optional)
Side: 200 mm fan x 1 (optional) (can be swap for 120 mm fan x 2)

I'd keep what you have and just add the single optional 200m fan.

If you want to control the fans with the BIOS you will need fan headers....enthusiast boards have as many as 8....most boards 4.

Those fans are LOUD .... gonan sound like an airport at your desk :)

Just daisy chain them on your Molex connections on your PSU rail. I have 10 in my antec 1200. Four of them were aftermarket.

Btw eg lawns, get a 200mm side panel fan. It's seriously quiet compared to anything else. Certainly to the two 120mm slipstreams.

I also bought one of these rated at 19 dB noise and I can't hear it at all.

Microcenter has those same ones for $5
