Hi guys,I need some help here :) 

Today my friend bought me this case from one guy for just 15$ :) ))

So let's start with the front view,where I have 1 80mm fan for the hdd.



It has of course 2 side doors,1 is full and another one is this:



And this is the back view:



I'm gonna put new build here and I wonder how to manage the airflow? I mean what fans where to put,which ones go for blowing air out of the case and in the case etc.

Sorry for kinda noob post,just doing this for first time,thanks ;)

In through the front and side, out the back. Simple.

OK,so I need 1 120mm and 2 80mm at the back side ?

and what is the second net on the side panel?

"what is the second net on the side panel?"

It's just for passive air exchange. It's not really needed.

Aaa,I see..

But why it has on the back 3 nets for fans? On most cases I see there is 1 or max 2 ? Am I right,I need 1 120mm and 2 80mm at the back side ??

I think that's overkill. Just get 1 120mm fan and leave the 80mm fan openings bare.
