At first glance I thought you had to much air going out and not enough comming in... now I see its almost ballanced...In all honesty it might even be over kill, 4 120cfm fans are going to be LOUD...My first case mod was a mid tower with 4 120mm fans, case temps only droped 3c from when it had 3 80mm...If you want to do it go for it,case mods are fun ;D

I looked at it again, there are 4 120's on there right? it looks it but only 3 are marked

Are you showing 1 or 2 side case fans?

Make the Top Fans suck air out of case, make the side fans blow air into the case, the fronts blowing in and the rears blowing out.

Looks like a good setup to me.

the top 2 are 60cfm 120mm fan's.. i just shown them as 120cfm....

all of the front ones are blowing in.. the 2 on the side are blowing in also...
and the ones at the top/back are blowing out..
sorry for the confusion.....

do you guy's think i should att anouther 30cfm so that the case will be a high pressure zone.. ** to keep down of dist **

From what ive been told, you want positive pressure in the case, so that extra fan would help

yea.. i just found out that there was 2 extra fans on the case that i dident account for.. and there blowing out...** one below the psu and one pci cooler **
they both ring in at a total of 90cfm... so im goin to comensate with anouther bay cooler and one more fan on the side ofthe case......

tanks guys for you help..... i wasent sure if i was on the right track.....

p.s. what is the best way to go about putting these holes on the case? drill alot of holes in a form of a circle? or Get a Doorknob drill and use that?

Correction make the top fan suck it and the two side fans blow out, also front bottom fan to suck and rear top fan to blow. Thats the way it goes.Sorry dude.
