So i finished my build and got everything working, but the front fan of my HAF 912 has a cable that cant reach my Asrock z77 extreme 4 mobo, so will i able to run my build without that one? (until i get an extension) i am running onboard graphics at the moment because i dont have the right type of DVI for my graphics card and i am running an i5 3570k cpu

If you are not overclocking, you won't be creating enough heat to be a problem. Running with only an extract fan, will mean case will be under negative pressure, so there will be a tendancy for dust to get sucked in, wherever it can, so you need to bear that in mind.

I had my Antec Sonata with one fan for a little bit, and it was on my H60 watercooling unit.

I then removed my 6950, added another fan, and added another fan onto the H60.
