    Cooler Master 590: Do the side panel fans provide decent cooling?

    Just checking. I'm looking into buying / replacing fans that came with it. So far, it comes with a 120mm for the front (LED) and the back (regular). I was going to replace the back 120mm with an LED, place 2x 140mm LED fans for the top 2 vents, and then was thinking about anything else.

    I'm really aiming for quiet here, so I'm going for the Yate Loon low speed fans. Should I put 2 fans on the side panel of the case, or not worry about it?

    I wouldn't bother with the top fans unless experience show they are needed. Hot air won't pool there anyway so in my opinion they would just add noise. Nice to have the possibility to add them easily if needed though.
