I ordered a Sonata II as my next case but i have a question. Should i install the optional ( 1 front 120mm fan, 1 92mm fan in the air duct to cool the CPU, 1 80mm fan for graphics cards) fans. Will it cool the system better?

Up to you.

Remember that the more fans you add to a case the more noise it generates, therefore find a trade-off between noise and temperature.

You'll probably find anyway that you don't need the fans at this time, until the weather warms up anyway. I have a 120mm fan in my case but it isn't plugged in to anything. When the summer comes, take the side off and plug in the fan if I think it'll help.

Do be advised though that essential fans are always needed - heatsink fans and fans already provided on graphics cards, for example.
