I use Silverstone RL 01 Casing which comes with 120mm Front Case fan
That is the only fan i have in my casing. I used stock fan for processor as i'm not interested in overclocking. My specification is in signature. I'm going to add the following card. Do i need any additional case fans?

Certainly can't hurt to have more fans anyway. Useful too, if you

decide to OC anyway.

may be i can monitor the GPU temp and add fans if exceed. I don't have extra cassie fan connectors in my board. I don't want to connect fans to PSU as they will run on full speed. There is also some fan where we can set the speed but sadly we have to open the casing to adjust it right?

Can you tell me acceptable max temperature for that card?

I would get 1 x 120 mm fan for the rear, just to keep the airflow moving. You probably don't need to, but it does help keep things a bit cooler and when the room that it is in gets warmer, you will have better cooling.

I want to keep my casing positive air pressure in order to keep it dust free. I have filtered top hole i'm planing to add another intake 120mm along with front intake 120mm

I think most PC components work best when they're under 60 to 70C

You have than option too. I think having at least 2 fans is a good idea, especially when you add more components to your existing build (the GPU is a bit of a heat generator too).
