Hello, I usually lurk to find what I need, but I couldn't find this answer this time around.

So I have a Cooler Master 430 which comes with one 120mm fan at the front which has a blue LED.

I would obviously need more then that to have nice cooling.

I will be getting an i5-3450 and $150-$200 graphics card and I was wondering how many fans would I need? I'm planning to just use the stock CPU cooler for the processor.

I was thinking that I would only need one 120mm fan at the back of the case, am I correct? What RPM should it be? I really don't want the dB to be over like 35.

Would one of these http://canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=8_130&item_id=045728 and the 120mm front blue LED fan that's included with the case be okay?


Thanks.

Should be allright. If you really want to make sure it's cool. Put an intake on the side or the bottom, and another exhaust at the top.
