Does it need 2 fans to run optimally?

No, one 92mm or 120mm fan is enough.

But it looks ace with two 92mm strapped to it. :)

It accepts 92 mm too?

What is the difference between a 92mm fan and a 120mm fan?
Or single or dual fan?

And also, is there any specific fan that is more powerful or any brand's fan is good?

120mm fans are usually quieter while still push a fair bit of air.

As for brands, Yate Loon, Scythe, SilenX seem pretty quiet, most Sleeve fans are. While Vantec, Thermaltake and most ball bearing fans are loud.

I personally use Scythe 120mm on my CPU cooler and I intend to use two Scythe 92mm on my HR03 when I get around to ordering one. I use Antec Tri Cool for my case fans.

Thermalright has a VGA back cooler. Does anyone now that works?

What difference does ball bearing make?

I'm not sure. I hope they do have one. The backside of my GTX gets very toasty.

Ball Bearing last longer and can spin faster, but they are very loud.

The backside cooler appearently only drops the Video Card temp by 5 degrees only during load. I'd rather use the Hr-03 instead. I think it's for people who don't know how to take off their stock cooler, so the backside clipon cooler is easier to install.

Ball Bearing lasts longer? Never knew that.

I have 2-80 mm fans mounted to mine.

Yate Loon goes up to 1200RPM? Are all of these "quiet" fans just slow spinning ones?
