You really only need one intake and one outtake and a decent air cooler... thats it

2 is the minimum.on intake one exhaust. it all depends on your case. just put as much case fans in there as you can. and control the fan speed w/ a controller. then you will be good

A decent CPU Air Cooler costs like $20....

But you shouldn't even be running a rig without one..
