Does this case need extra fans?

So I recently got all the components for my new pc, but I'm questioning if it needs more fans or not...

This is my first go at building my own pc, so idk a whole lot about it. I've read posts that said the fans are fine as they are, and I shouldn't need more, but ive read others that say no. I would just buy them to be safe, but I went way over my budget on this pc, so I'm kind of cutting myself off as far as spending.

So, does this case need extra fans for my build? Could I get away with just the stock fans?

More about case extra fans
  1. You should be able to get away with stock fans. Nothing you have in there is going to be generating a crazy amount of heat. And worst case scenario, you get it up and running and during full utilization you see temps that are higher than you are comfortable with, and need to buy another fan or two.

  3. That case has 2x 120mm intakes , a 120mm rear & a 200mm top exhaust!

    No you're most definitely not going to need any more fans mate ;-)

  5. +1 for madmatt30's suggestion too, you're throwing a fair bit of money where it doesn't need to go.
