First of all very nice build! You can save some money with a good 650 watts PSU which will be enough even if you overclock.

what case fans configuration you would recommend for a build that look like this

I would only use 140mm fans as they move more air at less rpms compare to 120mm fans. Probably wouldn't mount fans on top to keep top panels. Fractal fans are decent so its fine using the ones provided.

2 -140mm fans on front panel (only one included)

1 - 140mm fan on rear panel (included)

1- 140mm fan on bottom panel (this one to help cool the 390)

You would need to get 2 140mm fans for this configuration as there are only 2 included. If you want the same fan

If you want a better fan I would get noctua or bequiet.

Very helpful reply, thx a lot man, I'm so close to buying but "may our temps be low and our fps high" means I'm rethinking this build.

That is the best R9 390 IMO (newer sapphire nitro with backplate) best temps... If you can wait AMD POLARIS i think is coming soon.. Maybe buy a cheap GPU until AMD releases POLARIS or nvidia's pascal.

I think polaris is the nvidia killer

Yeah thats what I was thinking, initially I wanted to crossfire the r9 390 but with Polaris on the way, I don'T know. I'm not an Nvidia hater thought, it's just that at the moment AMD card appeal more to me.
