This case comes with a front fan (Intake) and a rear (Exhaust) fan. You must definitely add a 120 mm top (Exhaust) fan, and a side (Intake) fan.

The Hyper 212 EVO is fine (I have one in my i7 3770K overclocked computer).

Would two of these work well?

you don't need more fans, you should do fine. i have 2 fans (intake and exhaust) and my temps never go above 80 (for a really old and hot radeon hhd4890) and 60 for my core 2 quad q6600. you can get more fans, but they arent needed. those fans would be fine, maybe a bit loud but not really loud.

It should have enough fans, no need to add more unless you intend to overclock heavily or run multiple video cards in SLI/Xfire.
Of course, you could make it quieter and cooler by replacing the fans it has and adding new ones, but that's more of a preference.

Yes they will work but I like to see a higher CFM rating; the 44 CFM is rather low. I like to see something above 65 CFM. The 120 mm size and the 4-pins PWM features are fine.

I don't think the case would look all that great if it had both green and red fans

I do plan to overclock a little bit. So should I add two fans or replace them? I don't want the pc I'm going to build to get very hot, I'm putting an fx 6300 and an R7 260x in it.
