For my build, I "choke" the internals to avoid dust build up and also avoid air sitting in the case and getting hot. To do this, I have one intake fan and two outtake. For ambient temps at load and idle, this does the job nicely and rarely do I need my fans to start whirring up to cool down the chassis
