All cases are different. My preference is one in the front, one in the back, and one on the power supply. Pentium 4 processors often need extra air, and many new cases have a side fan. My main computer has all of the above. Most computers use the power supply fan to vent the case. Some cases have an extra space on the back for a 120mm fan. My favorite power supplies have a 120mm fan on the bottom of the power supply.

But some computers only have a power supply fan. (Not counting the processor fan and maybe a video card fan) Some use the processor fan with a shield that vents to outside.

Well my case has a 80mm on the side and back, and a 90mm in the front as well as a 120mm on my powersupply should that keep my case cool?

You should have no problem... but if you think of Overclocking or anything like that there might be a few little changes.

Liquid cooling is also quieter wich is nice if it is in your living room but can be a pain if you lug your pc to LAN Parties alot...

Well, what are you running? (CPU, Video Card, etc) I would suggest getting a whole new case. Get some more airflow through it.

Break out the Dremel® Tool and modify the case yourself. Make sure you do not get any metal shavings on the motheboard.
