I have just purchased a new rig with an Antec 300 ultimate gaming case. the case comes with One top 140mm x 25 mm fan and one back 120mm x 25 fan as standard. there are 3 other *optional* fan slots available, 2 at the front and one at the side, do you think it wise to purchase all available fan slots or.....?
Just to add that my rig consists of: i5 760 2.8ghz OC'd to 4.0ghz 4gb's of corsair XMS3 DDR3 ram at 1600Mhz OCZ StealthXtream II 600w PSU Asus P7P55D-E Intel P55 (Socket 1156) DDR3 Motherboard Akasa Venom CPU Cooler Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 500GB SATA-II 16MB Cache OcUK GeForce 470 GTX 1280mb GDDR5 Graphics card.

I'd highly consider at least one front one and the side one. You're running a lot of very hot components for a smaller case without a lot of fans.
Thank a lot Admiral. i will do just that. Are there any 120mm fans that you recommend?
Not really. I don't buy into the idea that there is a huge amount of difference between fans. I'm sure if you look around in the CPU & Components or Overclocking sections you'll find some recommendations.
