all right , i plan on buying this case and i need help on how i should do the fan setup. I chose a Corsair H100i 77.0 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler which will take 2x 120mm fan slots(with the radiator) in the top panel. that means that i have 2 left that i can use up there.
The thing is , i only plan going watercooling probably in the very distant future(after i get money for 2 way sli) , but for now i will only take the simple "air flow" option. This means that , except the cpu radiator , i will not install any other radiators.
I plan on using the Corsair Air Series SP120 High Performance fans or probably the silentwings 2 if i get a good deal on them. I am going to put 4x 120mm fans at the bottom, 2x 120mm fans at the top(besides the cpu fans of course) , and probably 2x 120mm fans at the side. This means that i will use every fan slot available. Is this configuration ok considering that i will not use any radiators for them ? I am certain the air flow will be more than enough , but somehow i wonder if it's worth it even though i won't use radiators.. any thoughts?
I also need a recommendation regarding the fan controller ...need a decent one that will take all these fans (don't forget that beside these there are also 3x 120 mm in the fron and 1x 140mm in the back included...in total there are 14 fans i believe). ( also not sure if i need a pwm splitter, as i am not sure if i will have enough fan powering slots )
Please take a look at the motherboard ( asus maximus VI formula ) and tell me how i should do all of the above.. seems i have 3 x Chassis Fan connectors and 3 x Optional Fan connectors...my head hurts already from all of this so i will wait for your help...
here is the rig in case you wonder what i need to cool : http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1wNML
