so I'm new to PC building and I'd like to know if two fans is enough for a case?
I'm getting the phantom 530 it has a large 200 mm intake fan in front and a 140 mm exhaust in the rear do i need more fans?

What is the build? Chances are those fans are fine.

Many variables. Water cooling or air? Does your GPU circulate hot air in the case or vent it out the rear?
Is your power supply fanless? Tell us your whole system & we can better answer your question.

i put my list in one of the comments but the cpu is water cooling. the gpu circulates the air. and my psu has a fan which i will most likely have facing the bottom of the case

You will be able to overclock. Don't worry about the cooling.

I think you will be fine as well. Those are large fans designed to move a large volume of air while still keeping noise levels down. I say try & monitor.

Get a better PSU. That unit is not suited for heavy loads. Change to an antec, XFX, Seasonic, or EVGA G or P series unit.
