Motto: Pantsu is my Baka <3 Also spells my name Yoori now.
So on their website it lists the fan sizes and the exhaust (back fan) is one I don't really see that often anymore.

Cooling system
Front: 1 - 120mm fan (included is a hydraulic bearing 120mm Silent Series R2 fan, 1200 RPM speed)
Rear: 1 - 92mm fan (not included)
Side: 1 - 120mm fan (not included)

For your front and side fans, I would recommend Venturi fans. I've been sing Venturi fans in my past 4 PC builds and they're fantastic in both cooling and noise. At 100% speed, they're not too loud, however if your mic is sensitive it will still pick up on them; if you have a case with sound dampening foam, I don't think a mic would pick up on them at 100% without the mic being right next to the case. Using the NZXT Sentry 3 to monitor somewhat of my case temps, my case sits at 19.3-26.1 Celsius depending on the weather that day. If it's a cool day while still keeping my AC running, temps are at 13-16.6 Celsius but that's rare in California. I use 4 of the HF-14's in my case and 2 of the HP-14's on my CPU to keep my radiator cool, which my CPU; i7-5820k when not overclocked hangs at 29-34c idle, in game, roughly 56-65c. When overclocked, there's other variables to account for that offer way too many different temps. I will say, these fans are an oddball at durability, and I don't mean as in they're just going to shit out on you at random. I have accidentally stuck a screwdriver into the fan when it was running at about 1100 RPM, when I was unscrewing it (don't ask why I kept my fans on) and the fan just spit the screwdriver out without breaking any blades on the fan. However, I have also touched a different fan through the dust mesh, when brushing dust off (again, don't ask why I did it with the fans on) and 2 blades broke off. I barely touched it with the tip of my index finer and my finger didn't even get caught in the blades, unlike a metal screwdriver that won't bend as easily as a finger would. So there's that inconsistency with them.

Make sure when checking out, to get the w/o PWM. w/o PWM is the HF-12/HF-14; 12 meaning 120 mm (your front and side fans) and 14 means 140mm. The Venturi with PWM are the HP-12/HP-14, which is High Pressure, more suited for radiators for watercooling or a CPU AIO.

For the 92mm, I would recommend Noctua. I personally don't like the colour scheme at all, but if you can get past it, their performance is very well worth it.
