As few as possible to achieve acceptable temps. I am a test geek. Perform smoke tests and place thermal probes throughout the case with various configurations. Often less is more. Go with the flow.
That is the correct attitude.

4, though I guess 5 if you count the tiny 40mm Arctic fan I stuck on my SSD to bring it below the 60-degree mark. 2x BeQuiet Silent Wings 3 on the front radiator (intake), a Noctua NF-A12x15 as an extra top intake to get some ambient-temp air around the motherboard, and a Nidec Gentle Typhoon (1850rpm) on the rear rad. All running at low RPMs, though the GT does run full speed when things heat up. Other than my case ambient being a bit toasty, this setup is enough to keep everything at very decent temps, including that power hog of a GPU. The CPU can exceed 60 degrees, don't think I've ever seen the GPU go above 52.

Also worth noting, all case fans are connected to the NZXT "smart hub" (oh dear how I hate that name), which is quite a good unit except for CAM crashing from time to time. Good thing my setup is capable of keeping temps in check even when fans are at their lowest setting :p

Thanks for hint, but the fan is installed properly. I don't have any issues with temperature. The only thing that bothers me is the noise of this 140 Akasa fan running on full speed. But i think it is the price of performance.
Everything with my airflow is fine. I have a slight overpressure but it helps a little bit with dust.
So your top fan has been flipped since the picture was taken? If not, it is indeed set up as an intake, which seems unnecessary - you'll still have positive pressure with three intake fans and two exhaust fans (as per your own illustration).

Just saw the thread, joining the raid :) I have four fans in the case (PSU/CPU excluded). Two 120 intake and two exhaust (120+140). I think for cheaper cases it is better negative pressure than positive. This conclusion of mine based on Bit-tech extensive review that in general it is better to take the hot air faster from GPU and CPU area, than to pump fresh air in. Dust I can't fight anyway, I have come to terms with that. Just blow it with car compressor/air can from time to time and off we go. I'm never gonna invest into super expensive magnetic dust filters anyway and there are plenty of cracks, gaps and all sorts of mini holes in the chassis. Lost battle if you ask me. But I'd love to get my hands on some of Silverstone's vertical oriented cases, despite the fact convection in such small space doesn't really help all that much. Their success is more of combination of massive 180mm fans plus the fact there isn't much clutter between the fans the object they cool. Not my words, Puget's systems testing, I just happen to agree with their conclusions.

Edit: I control the fans with Lamptron FC2 fan controller. No frills, no display, separate power supplier tough little bugger.

1x chonky rear exhaust, panaflow 120mm (use it dialed down since ambient temps range here from 45C in summer to around 10C in winter, lol )
1x PSU exhaust 120mm
1x deepcool slim type intake for the GPU

internal:
1 x 40mm VRM and chipset cooler
2 x 120mm deepcool ice blade on the CPU cooler
2 x 90MM on my RX 580

so 10 in all. I have all of them controlled to low -> med settings so much that they are not audible. I control them with ASROCK AXTU supplied with the mobo itself.

Those are great inexpensive fans my 2nd favourite to use after Arctic F12s and 14s

Thanks to RGBLED inflation, it would be over a thousand bucks today. Those old sleeve-bearing fans used to cost a dollar each, tops...

How about this? I guess it's a bit lacking in the RGB department for modern standards, though.

I have 2 intakes on both my PCs. 1 Exhaust at the back each with the top fan slot empty. Ryzen has all CM Jetflos. (3 total) My i7 has 2 CM Jetflos intake, Noctua IPPC 12V on the heatsink and the lovely beige stock noctua fan as exhaust.
I dont actually overclock daily, its heavy overkill, and I guess to most a waste of money. I do often spool up my fans to full speed when celebrating a victory at a LAN at least.

5x120 but its too much, and with new build im going for 2x120 front, 1x120 rear. 2x120 front and 1x120 rear is enough for 90% of cases, unless the airflow is really really bad. Sometimes adding more fans do absolutely nothing if the intake is choked[looking at non mesh front builds].

Main gaming PC, I don't run a case.... So no case fans. Cpu cooler and VRM fan. Plus the 2 fans on the GPU.....lol.

HTPC has 4. 2 in front, one on top and one rear.
Wife's rig has 2 case fans. Modded side panel with 220mm?? intake and a 120 rear exhaust.

My TJ07 (when used) had 11 case fans and 4 radiators.

fun times!

and with the CM 4in3 cage, got an old awesome San Ace 1011 120mm fan on 7v to keep it all cool inside the drive cage
This case was a Huge leap from the older one's that a Lot would recall with So many 80,92,120 fan's being moved all over just to "try" to cool inside.
It's super quiet and with the air cooler work's like a champ since about 2009/10, and the current 2012 build.
Those slow huge fan's move a ton of cool air for it.

Yeah. If you're keeping it I think you ought to get a down draft cpu cooler so you can cool the vrm and rams as well.
