    I dont know much about fans but that 120mm pushes out a whole lot more air then the 80mm...I didnt think it was that much..but 2 fans in the front and 2 in the back (80mm) should be fine..Those stealth fans look very good and arent very loud at all.

    Is 30Db or below very quiet?

    That's a good fan.

    If you cut the rear to fit that 120mm fan and you make sure to open the lower front to let air flow in then you probably could use just 1 fan. I think 3 fans of that size is just overkill.

    These standard chrome grills allow for great airflow without restriction.

    It really depends on what you want. For a 120mm fan it doesnt push out alot of air...that is a vantec STEALTH

    Heres a regular Vanted one Vantec Thermalflow It goes from 52-94 CFM, and from 29-39 DBA. That one would push out alot more air but will be slightly louder

    Do you plug the fans power connector into the Mobo?

    I wouldn't. It's better to connect it directly to the power supply.
