This is my first full build, so i'm still learning when it comes to some aspects of a build. I have 3 120mm fans to install. my case has 6 slots, 1 on mid/top back, 2 on top, 2 on side 1 in bottom front. Whats the best combo for me? I'm just running with the single HD, and no plans to OC in near future. If i plan to OC ill fill the rest f the case with fans and upgrade my factory heatsink. Should I do back, 1 top 1 side? or maybe 1 back, 1 top, 1 front? Im still learning so any advice is appeciated!
