Thanks again for your fantastic input! Yeah I didn't think about the fact that if I had more fans, i could lower the RPM.

However, my CPU and GPU will be watercooled so I"m assuming 2 fans is still enough? I was actually thinking that if I watercooled my CPU and GPU, I can even lower the fan RPM. Or is 4 fans still the better option?
No problem, just helping out a fellow modder.

The heat has to go somewhere, be it air cooled or water cooled. The only difference is that for air cooling u would have to remove heat from the heatsink while for watercooling, you would have to remove heat from the radiator. Both method would require good air flow in your table/casing to remove the heat away unless your radiator is placed outside the enclosed space, in which it would be a entirely different matter.

If you are really concerned about the number of fans, i would suggest that you cut out more fan holes and do something similar like a removable lid to cover the fan holes if u dont require so many. I mean since u are designing and constructing your own table design anyways so why not. I believe your woodworking friend would be able to help u out in designing a secure screwless removable lid.
