Need help with fan cooling in my NZXT Phantom

Hey all, I've ordered all of my parts for my first build! They are:

CPU - i5 3570-K Quad Core
CPU Cooler - Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO
Mobo - ASRock Z77 Extreme4
Memory - G. Skill Ripjaws X Series 2 x 8GB
HDD - Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB
SDD - Crucial M4 128GB
GPU - EVGA GTX 670 FTW Edition
Case - NZXT Phantom ATX Full Tower
PSU - Corsair 650W

What I need help with is deciding on what (if any) case fans I need to get. The Phantom came with the 2 stock fans, but I'm worried that those 2 alone won't be enough. However, I'm relatively new in the PC building world and I need some input/advice on what I should do to keep my build cool!

Thank you for all of your help!

All the Phntoms I've seen have 2 side, 1 top, 1 rear, and 1 front fan. But if yours only has 2 fans, as long as they are at least 120mm and positioned as intake and exhaust you should be fine.

My buddy has a Phantom, and it only came with 2 fans. A top one and a front one.

You should be fine if you don't want to spend money on fans. The thing is, the fans in the Phantom are the really nice fans (white fan with black plastic) and are usually hard to find or match.

They're also way too expensive.
