    Airflow Sharkoon Scorpio 1000

    Hello, im new to this forum and would like to have some information and advice about cooling mine new PC
    Last month i put mine own PC together with the next components in it.

    Processor: Intel Core i5 2500K 3.3GHz
    Memory:Corsair Vengeance 8GB CML8GX3M2A1600C9 DDR3-1600MHz
    Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar Blue WD5000AAKX 500GB 7.200RPM
    Video Card:MSI N560GTX-Ti Hawk
    Sound Card:Creative Soundblaster X-Fi Titanium Bulk
    Motherboard:GIGABYTE GA-Z68XP-UD4
    Computer Case: Sharkoon Scorpio 1000 + Cooler Master Real Power Pro M850

    There is 2 pre-installed fans that came with the Sharkoon Scorpio 1000. 1x 120mm infront and 1x 120mm rear.
    Im able to install 4 optional fans which are: 2x 120mm or 2x 140mm on top panel and 2x 120mm or 1x 200mm on side panel.

    How mine question is how i would get a good airflow through mine PC. This is how it looks like now(i didn't do any cable management, will do it once i got the time for it.)

    I also checked the next links:

    To get some information about whats a good fan with good airflow but didn't understand anything of the graphs a dB of 30-50 would be good for me since the airflow is the most important thing for me.

    I will also buy Noctua NH-D14 processor cooler to replace the stock intel cooler that you see on the picture.

    With a D14, just grab Yate Loon 140mm fans and you're good to go.

    The 200mm side panel may be a great idea for graphics cards.

    The only sound I want to hear out of my computer (unless I'm gaming or watching a movie) is the hum of my 6000 rpm fan pushing air through my heatsink. - Seebs
