The cpu and graphics cards each have their own heatsinks and fans. And it looks like you case has a front and rear fan. You should be go to go fan wise. The heatsink/fan that comes with the i5 isn't the greatest, but since you aren't overclocking if will cool the cpu just fine, it just might be louder than an aftermarket cpu cooler.

The Raidmax case has a rebate in case you did not notice. $34.99 after rebate.
I'll let others answer the fan question.
