I am just about to build a computer around the cooler master elite 430. It comes with one pre installed front led fan. I currently have 2 120mm fans. Where would the best place in the case be to put them.
(I am using i5 2500k, ocz stealthxstream 2 600w, msi r6850 oc, one hd, artic cooling freezer 7 pro rev 2)

I have the coolermaster Elite 430. Considering you only have two extra fans, I'd use them as two exhaust fans on the top and rear of the case.
Imagine the same fan placement, except with only 1 at the top instead of 2!
I'd suggest the two part article toms did on air cooling - some obvious things are mentioned but it puts alot of doubt/daemons to bed. I found it quite useful when i was building my last machine and have referenced it to a few friends too.
