I want to buy Antec NX200 case with 5 Arctic Bionix fans, so my question is, what type of fans should I put around the case....
the options are P120 (Static Pressure) and F120 (Airflow)
Will be glad for any help on what to choose and where should I place it....

if u really want good airflow u must have on front fans to intake air on top to push air and on back side to push air out...maybe u buy better case if u want antec see nx800...but for my opinion fractal design, coolmaster are better choose... go for fractal design meshily c king of air flow...

The Fractal Design is too expensive where I live...
and what do you say about the Antec NX600 ?

I checked and couldn't find any fractal design anymore... the NX800 costs about 125$... but I found Be Quiet Pure Base 500 for less than the NX800, is it any good ?

Is this an online store? If so link us to it.

When it comes to cases you're sometimes better spending more on a case with preinstalled cooling than buying a cheaper case and having to supply your own fans!

Out of those 2 pick the pure base 500.

It comes with 2 x 140mm fans, one front and one rear.

Remove the rear, add it to the front as an extra intake and buy a decent single 140mm fan for the rear exhaust.

That gives you 2 x 140mm matching intakes and a 140mm rear exhaust which is more than ample for 90% of systems.

ALWAYS pick a case that supports 140mm fans over 120mm.

3 x 140mm fans will do the same job as 5 x120mm fans generally and the extra surface are on intakes give a more uniform and spread airflow throughout the case.

You also benefit from lower max rpm and lower noise levels.
