Should I add fans to a Rosewill R5 (budget gaming build)

My case has two front intakes and rear exhaust fan. I will be building soon, I was wondering if I am not OCing, do I need to add more fans or can add them later when I have more money? Thanks!

In case it is relevant, the desktop will sit under my desk. The long end will be parallel to the wall, and the mobo will face my legs

  1. If it comes with fans then don't bother, only get fans if you want it to look cool (LED), other than that don't bother
  2. Best answer
    You'll be fine with the case as-is. The CPU cooler fan will probably be the loudest thing in your case. If you want to reduce noise or temps, you're better off spending the money on a 3rd party CPU cooler with a larger, quieter fan.
  3. I am fine with noise mostly, I just don't want anything to overheat. Eventually, after I buy the wifi card, I intend on buying a CPU cooler.
