Just curious on some Temps and Fan options. Thanks.

I have an intel i3 and it's running @33-35C at idel and my graphics card is a geforce 9800 gtx+ and is running @44-47C. Do you think those temps are pretty good at idle? They obviously go up when i'm gaming, to around 60's C for graphics and 50's C for CPU. I have in the front 2 120mm Fans, on top I have a 140mm fan and on the back I have a 120mm fan. I have the two front fans sucking in and the top and rear fans blowing out. Does everyone agree that's the way I should have them? Also I have room for one more 120mm fan on the side. Should I have that Fan sucking in or blowing out? And idea's would be great. Thanks!

If you add the side fan, have it blow air into the case.

The fan on the side blowing in on the GPU yes. You may experiment with the top fan. I have mine blowing in and supply fresh air to the CPU cooler - that has worked out best for me.

Keep a positive pressure in the case. This means more intake cfm than outgoing cfm, and you have to take into account that in intake with a filter will have less cfm than the fan is rated for.

I don't have any exhaust fans, only 2 x 140 and 3 x 120 intake fans with an open fan port on the back where the air is forced out (an an air port on the graphics card). I can get by without a back exhaust because I have the CPU cooler with push/pull fans and the "pull" fan exhausts out the hole in the rear.
