Hi, i was wondering if the cooling set-up im going to have will be enough for the spec i've listed below. The Corsair Carbide 500R ships with 2 front fans (120mm) and 1 side fan (200mm) nad the rear exhaust (120mm i think) and i've already ordered 2 x 120mm coolermaster sickle flow fans for the top exhaust.

The spec i will be running is:

Intel Core i5 3570k (no overclock)
Asus Maxiumus V Gene (Z77)
Xigmatek Loki SD CPU Cooler
16Gb RAM - Corsair Vegeance 1600mhz (I think its the RAM with the heatspreader)
Nvidia Geforce GTX 670 2Gb
120gb SSD
2tb HDD
850W Corsair TX V2 PSU (I'm going to get 2 graphics cards when the gtx 670 drops in price, much later)

So how about it? Will i be able to toast some bread on my computer or will it run fine?

From my experience 10-12 years, it is always best to set up your case cooling so there is a greater number of intake fans than exhaust fans so as to create positive air pressure in the case this greatly helps to push out any warm air and at the same time prevents dust in your case, just make sure all intakes are filtered.
