Do i need extra fans?

Hey there,
I'm going to build a mini itx build. Here are the parts i chose:

AMD APU A10 6800K
WD Blue 1 TB
Corsair Builder Series CX 500 Watt ATX/EPS 80 PLUS
G.Skill Ripjaws-X Arbeitspeicher 8GB
BitFenix Mini-ITX Tower Case

I wonder if i need extra cooling, and if i have a big enough power supply, and maybe some other issues

More about extra fans
  1. if your not using a dedicated gfx card you wont need more fans. it ships with at least 2 120m fans which is enaough for the build you have listed.
    there is plenty of room to add more fans if you want/need to but like i said for that build its not essential to have massive cooling.
  2. I would say get extra fans as the APU produces alot of heat
  3. Without a card you will not need anymore fans.Your cooling will be adequate.
  4. Blackbird is right, For the sake of a degree or so less its not worth it. It will be quieter without and alsosaves pennys too.
  5. If i would add
    XFX Radeon HD 7770 1GB
    would i need to have a bigger power supply and more fans?

    No that's a lower power card , that PSU is fine , no need to add fans.
