Default Decent case airflow?

I was wondering if this case may be considered to have good airflow. It is the Cooler Master MB500

It has 6 case fans mounts (2 at the top, 1 at the rear, 3 infront), front semi meshed panel, top and bottom dust filters, and ventilations holes on the top of the case.

It comes already with 3 pre-installed fans.

I don't have really demanding parts. Ambient temperature is probably around 27-32C. So will it provide good cooling, thereby keeping temperatures down?

Specs:
CPU: i3 8100
GPU: GTX 1050 ti
MOBO: B360 HD3
Crucial 8 gb ram
Seagate 1tb HDD
PSU: Possibly Seasonic s12ii or Bitfenix whisper m

It looks like it has more than enough airflow for rather power efficient components like the ones you plan.

And out of those two PSUs Bitfenix is way better.

Thanks, I just wanted to make sure that it's enough as there isn't any reviews for it and there isn't a lot of choices in my country.

About the power supplies, the sleeve bearing fan in the bitfenix discourages me, considering everything else is okay.
Not to mention that it's oriented horizontally, thus increased chance of failure. And about the warranty, I haven't inquired but someone who mines bitcoin told me that there is no such thing as warranty, all talk. That is what you get by living in a 3rd world country.

So I don't really want to replace the fan by myself later.

Yet again the seasonic is old with less protections but again, that the only budget psu I can get my hands on atm.

For $35 dollars more I can get the V750 ($150~)

There's also MasterWatt 500/600w versions (Not the 550/650 versions)

Whisper M does not have sleeve bearing fan. It has HDB fan, which is technically modified sleeve, but that doesn't mean they share the same issues (patented FDB design is also modification of sleeve bearing while having significantly longer lifespan - that's the point of the modification in the first place). I really don't think fan is an issue in Whisper M, esp. since I'd expect it to work more quietly than Seasonic.

I wouldn't pay up for V750 either, it doesn't really bring much to justify it over Whisper, and you don't even remotely need 750W. You could run it on Seasonic G-360 without a hitch (it's not that quiet though...)

How about a fanless Seasonic?

Thanks for the input; the bitfenix looks more decent now. I think I'll just go with it, thanks!
