Default what fans should i get

so i was searching the yellopages today looking for a computer case, and ending up buying two becuase the guy charge me $5 each to get rid of them and they have not even been used. the one im using is mettalic green and i think it looks to be an apevia. There are four places for 90mm fans, i have two fans one of which is a blue led one. so what fans should i get that are cheap, also should i drill a hole on the top for a 200mm case fan? and on the side a 120mm or vice versa?

For smaller fans, I'd recommend Yate Loon. They're solid fans, and (most importantly) they're dirt cheap. As for the 200mm and 120mm placements, do you have a really high-end GPU / are you OCing your GPU? If so, I'd say put the 200mm on the side. However, if you have a hotter CPU that you're OCing, put it on top.

Drill the holes, and install 120mm fans. Best airflow / price ratio.

You say you don't care about noise, but imagine playing games with a chainsaw next to you. If you can deal with that, the Deltas are great. If not, stay the f--- away.

Pretty sure any people even living with you will be deaf too. If you want cheap, go with Gelid Silent 12's you can pm them pretty cheap but not the most airflow. If you want better fans, Scythe S-flex 1200 or 1600rpm one's are extremely good or even Slipstreams. Yate loons arent a bad choice either.
