Case Fans/Liquid Cooler for NZXT H440

Hi. I'm wondering if using 3 140mm fans and 2 120mm fans in this case would make sense alongside a Corsair H100i. My plan is to replace the stock fans with the 2 120mm fans, but I'm not sure if it'd just be better to stick with the stock fans, or perhaps get less-flashy 120mm replacements. From my understanding the case can hold this 240mm radiator, which I intend to place in the front (will the LEDs even be visible if they're mounted on the radiator in the front??). I'll put 2 140mm fans on top and 1 in the back. Thanks for any help/suggestions!

  • makes no sense to change the fans on the h100i
  • no, LED from front mounted fans will not be visible at all

Thank you! Good to know, I'll take those off of my part list. I know those were probably dumb questions but I've never built a computer and I just wanted to double check compatibility before making any dumb purchases.
