Do I need to buy more fans?

Hey everyone,

I just ordered my components, but I decided not to order any additional fans because I heard the NZXT Switch 810 (the case I chose) has great ventilation as is. It comes with a 140mm rear exhaust, a 140mm top exhaust, a 140mm front intake, and a 140mm fan inside. I am trying to decide if I should add another front intake and exhaust, but I am a minimalist when it comes to this stuff (if it's not necessary, don't do it just to do it). Do you think that the stock fans will suffice, or should I add more?

Specs:
CPU: i7-3820 Quad-Core (overclocking to about 4.3 GHz)
Cooling: 360MM radiator water cooling
RAM: 16GB DDR3, 1600MHz, Corsair Vengeance
Motherboard: ASUS P9X79
PSU: 1000W Cooler Master Silent Pro 80 Plus Gold (Yes, definitely thinking about the future :) )
Video: EVGA GTX 670 SC 2GB

    Well of course! :) I should have mentioned that I got three 120mm fans for the rad as well. I was talking more about adding case fans. From looking at a ton of threads/articles here, I think that stock setup is enough, but I want feedback specific to my build.

    It's good enough :) Just make sure your rad and fans can fit inside of the case without hitting your board.
  4. You could. More fans will help but not necessary. Have fun!
