Computer Questions

What's up Kwimmen? Glad you got everything working! It's funny, sometimes builds go really well (but more typically) you have to do a little troubleshooting when you first get them. Best way to learn if you ask me. In any case, I'm assuming you mean you don't have anymore fans on your rig, not you don't have anymore opt_fan 3-pin modules on the motherboard. The first answer to your questions is: your hard drives and SSD will be fine. They produce minimal heat, and unless you have a dozen of them in a closed box, won't even need a fan. However, you WILL want at LEAST another fan for your build. The general census (although this is debated) is to have a 2:1 ratio with fans. 2x as many blowing cool air in, for every 1 acting as an exhaust. I did some brief research on your case and it can take either 120mm x2 fans on the front, or 140mm x2 fans. The size won't make a tremendous difference in terms of cooling, but personally I'd go for 140mm simply because it will look better and be about the same cost Tongue  The front location will probably be the best source of intake, while your PSU and rear fan act as en exhaust, that should give you enough cooling for all uses, perhaps even a mild O.C. 

Fans Choices:

Noctuas are the most quiet, and are typically most expensive, but really ugly. If you want them to last forever, and be uber quiet, go with these (if you can get them on sale).
Thermaltake's higher end brands and great too, but they still use a bearing-system usually, so it's a little louder
Corsair (my personal choice) Is not particularly quiet, but lasts forever in my experience, and is decently priced. 

For the internet, you have a couple of choices. You could just get a USB wifi-dongle, which would be the easiest. For the minimal effort, and saving a usb-slot, I'd just use an internal wireless card. That's just me though. Of course, this is assuming you have a wireless router (if you don't, re-post, that's a lengthy discussion xD). 

Regarding your sound. Try the dumb thing first; 90% of the time monitors have a separate audio line-in cable for sound. Some of the more fancy ones use HDMI, but is less likely. Check to make sure that's plugged in. In regards to the bluetooth, yes, you can connect your bluetooth sound-thingee. Your computer (as most) does not come with bluetooth, so you'd need to get a bluetooth dongle (they're like $6). However, bluetooth over audio is a pain in the ass IMHO (at least on the PC). 


PEACE
