Where should I mount the fans?

So the fractal design R5 has 7 additional fan mounts. Where should I mount the fans for this build (note I can get more or different fans than the ones listed). I'm thinking two 120 mms on the top for additional exhaust, and two 120 mms on the bottom for intake. Should I get 140 mms? Should I buy high static pressure fans now? (I don't plan to watercool for a long time) Should I buy fans from fractal design? Should I replace the fans on the evo?

just use another 140 for front intake and a 120 or 140 for bottom intake. this is a silent optimized case so keep the top closed.
