My System Specs

Default Need advice for fan hookups....

Hello kind sirs I need a spot of advice on where to hook up all my fans. I do have a watercooled system but the HAF X case looks great with LED fans so Im tossing em in for the good looks. Here is the plan and I could use some help on where to hook up all the fans. I have a G1 Guerrilla mb with a cpu fan header a system fan header and 3 fan headers I have 1 230 mm intake front and 1 200mm intake side 140mm exhaust rear, 2x 200mm exhaust top, 120mm gpu shroud fan and 2x 120mm 240mm radiator fans. If yall would be king enough to lend me some suggestions it would help tremendously thank you.
