What are you connecting the fans to? I am assuming you want to use them in a PC but you didn't actually say. List your system specs, Motherbaord, CPU, RAM, PSU, Case, HDD, SSD, etc.

NZXT Source 210?
where do you want it mounted? the typical airflow goes like this.
front = intake (to cool HDD)
back = exhaust (this is always exhaust)
bottom = intake (optional)
side = intake (optional)
top = exhaust (unless you want dust blowing dust directly to your hardware, make it intake)

i think source 210 doesnt have enough fans included in the package. cooler master sickleflow is excellent. im using them. 2000rpm and not that noisy compared to thermaltake thunderblades or aerocool shark fans.

okay. good news and bad news..
there are slots for front intake fans in the NZXT source 210.. Bad news.. you need to remove the front panel to access that.

I own a NZXT guardian 921 rb before and you really need to take the whole thing apart to access the front fans. You can actually mount 2 x 120mm fans in there but the screws need to go in the front. The panel is not screwed or bolted, there's a plastic thingy in the edges that you can push to remove the panel but be careful since the panel has wires for the power and reset buttons as well as wires of the usb ports and audio panel.

this is the front panel by the way:
