Your case comes with a side fan and a blowhole fan, both 80mm.

You really dont need to add any more fans unless your going to overclock or if your computer is going to be in a hot environment.

BTW What rkf76 posted is a gpu (graphics card) cooler.

i won't recommend a lot of fans cuz...first, dust can easily clutter up inside which will slow the performance of ur computer...second, more fans=more noises (unless noise is not an issue to u)...and third, it's not really that good.

what u want to do is to have a nice airflow in your case.
