Going to order soon, should I buy extra fans?

Well I was going to wait to order my parts, but after seeing more and more rumors about the gtx 880 possibly being released this year I'm planning to order everything but the graphics card and use one of my current gtx 670s until the 880 is released. The build I'm going for is the following:

i7 4790k
gigabyte soc force z97 mobo
crucial m500 480gb (already bought)
seagate 2tb hard drive
nzxt kraken x61
nzxt h440 orange/black (already bought)
gskill ares ddr3 memory 8gb orange
evga g2 supernova 850w
roccat kone pure optical
corsair k70 rgb (whenver it's released)
windows 8.1 (already bought)

The build should run about $1100 for everything I haven't bought yet. I'm also giving one of my cousins a deal where if he buys me the mobo then he can have my current pc which is in my sig. I'll just be borrowing one of the graphics cards until the 880 is released.

Just wondering if it'd be worth changing out the fans or use the current fans installed in the case. From what I've read the case doesn't have great airflow but was designed with watercooling in mind. I don't think it'll get too hot even if I do a decent overclock on the processor. Currently I should be able to install the kraken x61 at the top of the case or do a push/pull config in the front after removing the drive bays and move the fans that are in front to the top. If different fans would be better, what are some good fans to look at? I'm trying to keep everything in my build orange/black.

Lastly before anyone says I don't need to upgrade what I already have, I'm only doing it as a birthday gift to myself. Just kinda splurging with the extra cash I have on hand. Plus I've had this computer for over 2 years now and just want something new.

I got that case and motherboard yesterday. Comes with 4 fans already, and the temps are solid. I'm sitting at 4.5ghz on a 4770k and the hottest its gone is 75c during Prime95. You should be fine.

No prob. How does the orange look? I got the Microcenter (black/green) one and it looks better than it did it pictures.

Well I placed my order and hopefully will have all parts tomorrow. Gotta love that fast shipping from newegg. Everything came out to $941 which isn't too bad. Not sure if I should use a 670 I have now or buy a 770 to hold me over til the 800 series is released.

From what I've heard, the 800 series isn't coming out till first half of next year. If you're ok with your performance, I wouldn't upgrade yet. Also, good luck building!
