What else are you considering?

More important than the number and size if fans - although they certainly have a positive effect - is the overall airflow management and balance. Do you have roughly the same blowing in as blowing out? Some prefer more in and some prefer more out - I like balance....

In general this should be good for a lot as is - but it depends on whether that graphics card vents its heat into the case or out of the case.

WOW! That is one huge beast.

It is my understanding the case comes with a mix of 120mm and 140mm case fans. If there are additional mounting locations for optional fans check to see if they are for 120mm or 140mm case fans.
