  1. Well how many fans do you have right now? Either way 2 fans in the front should be intake, side panel fan should be intake and rear and top fan should be exhaust. I am sure you wont need to buy all those fans since that case does comes with stock fans already installed. I just gave you a good fan orientation for that case
  2. I only have the stock fans, but I am thinking about replacing them with Scythe Gentle Typhoons (3x120mm for front and rear) and a Scythe Slip Stream (1x140mm for top). Would that work for my setup?
  3. Sure it works fine, have you considered any fans for the side panel? They are not mandatory but it will help with the video cards.
