This is my current build idea. My question is what other cooling options do I need to address, basically how many extra fans should I be using? I am new at this, thank you for the help.

  1. I dont know that you really need to worry about that so much, that case has 4 140mm fans. Plus you are gettting the Noctua CPU cooler.
  2. Guess that is all I needed to know, thanks!
  3. I don't see it happening, but if it gets too hot you can always pop in another fan down the road.
