well ur going to beed case fans to circulate air through the case minimum ull need 1 120mm up front under the harddrives and one 120 mm in the back as exhaust. but remember in terms of cooling more air movement the better.

The other 120 fan should be put at the back of the case to exhaust hot air out the back.

on my case i could only find a 80mm fan slot located below the hard drives and a 40mm fan slot located at the back its an old pc case. I reckon i should buy a new case and install the max fans. Thank you all for alerting me to the issue i will deal with it soon.
