This will be my new PC (still waiting for the motherboard, which should arrive tomorrow).

Now, being a complete noob, I don't really know much about cases, airflow and fans. I have not bought any case fans (I've been told I wouldn't need them — it's my third question in the list, answered in the first comment), but I could if really necessary (and not too expensive). Where I'll be living the temperatures won't be high (hardly ever more than 25C° during summer). My question is simply what direction the CPU cooler should be facing, and if you think more fans might be necessary. I will probably not be overclocking the CPU any time soon, nor will I be gaming excessively.

Thank you very much! And here's a pic of the case inside, if you want to draw something on it :3
