How many case fans does the MSI Z87-G55 motherboard support?

I am currently going to build my first computer, I want to purchase some custom fans and replace them with the stock fans to increase the airflow and reduce fan noise. The fans I am going to use are the Corsair AF120mm and AF140mm Quiet Ed. fans. For the motherboard and the case, I will most likely be using the MSI Z87-G55 motherboard and the NZXT Phantom 410 midi tower case. How many fans will I be able to install and connect to the motherboard?
Many thanks in advance! :)

    I just wanted to clear up some confusion, the AF fans have 3-pins, and the motherboard has 3x 4-pins. Should I look for a new motherboard and fans, or just go with it? Thanks for the quick reply, btw :)

    The 4 pin connectors support both 3 pin and 4 pin fans. So yes, the AF120 and AF140 will work fine,
