I'm planning a build using the Corsair Spec Omega case, which fits 3x120mm fans or 2x140mm fans on the front panel. I'll be using an I7 3770 on a basic H61 motherboard, 2 sticks of DDR3 RAM, a Gigabyte RX 570 and a couple of 3.5" 7200rpm HDDs.
I'm willing to go with the 2x140mm fans, but I won't be able to install them in a way that provides cool air to both my CPU/GPU and the HDDs. If I go with 3x120mm fans I'll be able to cool all of them at the cost of some silence, but should I really worry about the HDDs not receiving proper cooling?
