Default Modding the superflower sf402 for optimal aircooling


I've bought myself an Superflower SF402 Case.

I'm using the 2intake fans @5V, a zalman 80mm fan @5V outtake and a 80mm fan @5V in de psu.
As cpucooler, I'm using the sp97 with a 92mm papst @7V.
The system ain't completely silent right now because of the standard fangrills of the case...
So I'm planning to do some modding but I need some advice. I have 2 silent papst 120 mm fans lying around that will be used.
I ordered the following fangrill to place in my toppannel (120mm)


I'm nog going to use the standard fans of the case anymore, but I want to place a 120mm fan in the bottom of my case.
My question now, would it make a big difference to place 2 120mm in the bottom?
For the rest I would replace the standard fangrill of the outtake and I ordered a psu with a 120mm fan in the bottom. I also ordered a vga-silencer and a Radeon 9800 Pro.

Please do consider that a third papst 120mm fan would cost me another 25Euro and I will only buy if it makes a significant difference.

Silence and cooling are two things I want...

I don't think u can get 2 120mm in the front (if u already can get one there). Maybe consider using that fan as exhaust fan and dremel, cut or wathever, the front grills away. Ow, and u don't need a papst to have a silent pc, an enermax 120 is quiet too u know (@~1000rpm).

I know, but since I already have those papsts. I would place those 120 mm in the bottom of my case...

enermax fans are NOT quiet. been there, done that; they just won't run as silent as a papst fan does

1 or 2 120mm fans in the bottom don't make a huge difference I think. a big fan in the sidepanel/top would do a lot more
