its a raidmax scorpio 668 it has 1 fan on the psu, and 2 case fans

does it have any extra fan openings/holes??

cuz im going to get 2 extra fans (and grills/guards) so would i have to make my own opening or are there already openings?

By the way im planning on ocing this, so would the fan on the proccesor/heatsink, the fan on the psu, and the 2 case fans be good enough to keep it form overheating?? or would i need the 2 extra fans?

The case that you show is based off a Chieftec design, and it comes with mounts for two front fans and two rear fans. It also has a side blowhole with a fan preinstalled. Make sure that if you get two extra fans, you make sure that the airflow is equalized between the front and the back (Example: Both front fans are intake, both rear fans are exhaust)

BTW, you wont need to get fan grills since the fan grills are built into the front of the case (you cant see it from the pic, but if you remove the front panel you will see them).

Bboy, the same fan can be both exhaust or intake, just flip it the other way around to blow the other way. I never heard of that fan manufacturer, for a few dollars more you could get a name brand like this http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProdu...-129-013&catalog=62&manufactory=BROWSE&depa=1 or like this http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProdu...-129-027&catalog=62&manufactory=BROWSE&depa=1 that one is only 4.25 if you buy 2 and Antec is a well know brand. In the end I feel you get what you pay for. IMHO

I'd stay away from Antec. It's a brand name, yes, but they make pretty bad fans. The ones I've used in PCs get unstable after a while and start go shake and vibrate and make a ton of racket.

I'd go with speeze, but Panaflos are worth it if you can afford them. YS Tech, Vantec, Sunon, and Panaflo all make great fans.
