1 rear 120 x 25 TriCool Fan
1 top special 140 x 25 Tricool Fan

Those came with the case. It says they have a 3-speed switch control, but I have no clue how to switch them.

Sorry wasn't paying attention.

TriCool are okay fans but 2x exhaust and no intake fans will not give good airflow. I suggest getting a couple more 120mm fans as intakes in the front.

Where do you live and where online do you shop?

I live in Lithuania, the shop I use is Lithuanian too so I don't think it'll be of much help. Got any suggestions on what fan I should buy? Also, how do you switch the speeds on the TriCool fans?

Reason for a link to online shop is so I can see what fans are available and what their prices are. Than I can make suggestions.

Assuming your fans look like this, their is a molex power connector and a little black box on ends of cables. Little box has a 3 position switch LMH on the side of it are Low Medium High speeds.

Alright, should I turn off the power when doing this? Also, do you have any suggestions for the intake fans?

Wow, that was quick!
No, you don't need to turn the power off. Just slid the switch to different position of L, M, H .
I edited my last post explaining why I asked for a link to site you can buy from.

Alright, here's a direct link to all the fans and their categories:

Google Translate works well with it

Yeah, found it. There's only one, though the fans are connected so I presume it's enough. Switched it to medium, a bit louder but I don't mind.

Wow, that's actually really cheap. Should I get two or one?

There are better fans available but I think they will do the job. Yes, get 2 for the front of your case. You might want to find a 'Y' splitter

And if they are too loud at full 12v speed. If they are we may need to find something like this

Or you can use the yellow & red PSU moles wires and the red & black fan wires for 7v power
