Question Hi Its my first build.I have question

I just bought a CM 690 Advanced cooler master tower. It comes with three fans on it. 140mm intake on the front, 120mm extake on the rear, and a 140mm extake on top. It has optional fan slots on the side. I was wondering if i don't plan on overclocking will i need to buy these extra fans? because i don't have the extra cash right to spend on fans. Thanks for your help.

Simply: No

Air in the front, goes out the back, seems plenty good enough.

In terms of cooling, the most important things to consider for an overclocked chip are 1) the CPU cooler you chose, most opt for a decent after-market cooler, and 2) that you keep the fans you have clean and that you don't just let it swelter, for example don't put it in a place that has a high ambient temperature already, and don't squish it into a place with no real airflow.

So really, decent cooler; put it on the desk and have the window open? :P
