Question COOLER MASTER COSMOS S 1100 Fans Replacement/LCD display?

Here are the parts that I will most likely be ordering this week for my new build;

1st Case: COOLER MASTER Cosmos S 1100
2nd PSU: Tagan BZ Series BZ800 (800W)
3rd Case Fan’s: Scythe S-Flex

Wile I’m waiting for Q9450 & 9800 GTX I think it will be wise to make sure that I am satisfied with the rest of my components by ordering the parts above. I noticed that on coolermaster website they say that there 120mm fans will produce only 17dba with 1200rpm’s which is great, but I’m not sure about there airflow… That is why I most likely will be replacing all my stock case fans with “Scythe S-Flex” fans, what do u guys think? I know that I will need at least 4 120mm fans, 3 on top & one in the back. The one in the front that comes with the case has a red led to it, so I might keep it; it looks cool unless someone can suggest a better one? Am I missing any other fan spots? By looking at that case it has 2 air vents in the bottom, can I mount 2 fans in there as well? Or is it just a vent? Here is the link to the case; http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811119150

What I’m trying to accomplish is silence and GREAT air flow at the same time. I will @ all my system so cooling is important. Is Scythe S-Flex a good choice? There are 2 S-Flex types’ fans on Newegg; What do u guys think would be the best fan for me? Should I get all of the same fans? Or should I mix it up?

Fan Size 120mm http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835185005
RPM 1200 RPM
Air Flow 49.0 CFM
Noise Level 20.1dBA
Power Connector 3-pin (4-pin adaptor included)

Fan Size 120mm http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835185006
RPM 1600 RPM
Air Flow 63.7 CFM
Noise Level 28.0 dBA
Power Connector 3-pin (4-pin adaptor included)

Also I will be getting “Power Supply 3 Pin Fan Extension” just incase; http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16812189006

So what do u guys think? Are this Fans any good? Should I get more then 4 fans? Also does anyone know if that 200mm fan on the side of the case any loud? I also want to put a nice fan controller in there something cool looking with a nice lcd display, something like "AeroCool CoolWatch Fan Controller” what ya guys think?

Thanks

well since they took out the acoustic foam in the s version you will hear much more noise from the system, if you were to get the standard cosmos 1000, i would say go ahead and get the higher rpm fan, but with the s, i suggest you get one of the two quieter ones because you will hear more with that giant mesh thing on the side, and there's already a fat fan on the side of it, you will not need a huge amount of additional airflow. so i say get one of the two lesser rpm fans, but if you decide to go with the quietest fan, i say stick with stock cooling, the stock fans will be close to the same as the lesser rpm fan that you chose.
