Im building my first Gaming rig in less than a week and im buying my GPU 2morro. Just wondering if i should buy more fans for my case unless the 2 that came with my case are enough.

Specs:
CPU:FX-6300
PSU:500W Cooler Master 80+
RAM: G.Skill Sniper 8GB
Mobo: Asus M5A97 R2.0
Case: Cooler Master HAF 912
GPU: GTX 760
Also should i buy a Cooler Master Evo CPU Fan/Heatsink?

The main question is if you're planning to overclock or not.

Then yes, you needed the Evo.

As for case fans, I think that if your case already has 2 you should be good. Make sure one is pushing air in (from the front preferably) and the other is pulling it out from the rear. The HAF is quite big, you should have plenty of air flow.

Good luck!

Personally, I upgraded my case from 2 stock fans all the way up to 6 fans, the noise is still pretty low as well
