Is the front case fan necessary?

Besides lower hdd temperatures, are any other advantages in an good airflow case (like 3700AMB case, with good wire management)? Isn't enough only one 120mm fan in the back?

ps: oh, and i'm planning to use an aluminium filter in front, removing the case's default one...

Not really....IIRC, aluminium disipates heat much better than cooper, but absorbes it much slower than cooper; that...
