That works. It looks like a few people have complaints about low air flow, but it doesn't seem like it would be a big problem. This is especially true if your case is already relatively cool. If overheating isn't a major concern, then go for it.

If you want good fans, get a Delta Tri-Blade or the Panasonic Panaflos. They own all, hands down.

I prefer the Delta 120mmx38mm Tri-Blade High Speed SHE Fan. It pushes out 141.96 CFM at a relatively low 52.5 dBA. Or if you're hardcore enough you can even get the Delta 120mmx38mm Extreme High Speed. 220 CFM at a good 65 dBA. The ownage.

Delta and Panaflo fans are expensive for fans, but you get what you pay for.

I haven't got any case lighting, although my fan controller has a blue glow!

They aren't loud. If you want a quiet one, then just get the Low Speed version. It's quieter and moves a little less air, but it's just as effective. Or if you want, Panaflos are a good choice for quiet operation.
