How many fans will this case fit?

I am trying to figure out how many fans I can fit in the front of this case, and the top. Can anyone help/confirm? I was thinking two 140mm fans on the top, and three 120mm fans in the front. Does that sound correct?

up to 7 fans max. 3 x 120 mm (2 x 140 mm) fans in the front, 3 x 140 mm fans on the top (although spec only say's 2, 3 fit) and 1 120/140 mm fan on the rear. since you'll be using an optical drive, 5 x 140 mm fans is best if you wanna max out the fan locations. though not necessary. another 140 mm fan in the front is fine. another PH 140SP, the same fan that comes with the case, would be a good choice.

You can fit 2 140mm or 3 120mm in the front if you remove the optical drive cage.

You can also fit the same thing up top and a single 140 or 120mm at the back.

By default, it comes with 1 140mm in the front and 1 140mm at the back.

I plan on using the optical drive cage. So I am probably best with two 140's on the top and the front, right?

Where possible use 140mm over 120mm fans as they move more air at less rpms (more silent).

I would think so. Here are some good fans, for your reference: https://pcpartpicker.com/products/compare/fHhj4D,gD9KHx/
