hey guys. so i got a new case ( sort of... fractal design define s )

i need recommendation for what kind of intake and exhaust fans should i buy. and what brand. ( a list will be appreciated so much )

and i saw an intake at the bottom ( beside the power supply ) should i put a fan in there too.

my aio will be at the top

please help and thank you :)

Ideally you should populate the same fans for the intakes and the exhausts. What sort of a budget do we have to work with? What are the specs to your system innards? List them like so:
CPU:
Motherboard:
Ram:
SSD/HDD:
GPU:
PSU:
Chassis:
OS:

budget is still subjective.

Usually for a standard ATX Case like that, I would configure 2 140mm fans in the front (2 120mm fans/ 3 120mm would also be okay). Then for the exhaust, have a 120mm a the top of your real panel (most cases come with one installed) and another one at the rear of your top panel. Hot air rises so you want your exhaust at the top of your case. That is essentially the basic neutral/ positive pressure set up for a mid size ATX case

Did the case not include fans? If it did, the fractal fans aren't bad at all. I use the included as an exhaust as the rest of mine is custom loop. But prior to that I was using the included fans with an h100i up top.

yeah. sure i go static pressure or airflow for intake?
