Question

Is two outwards stock fans all I need?

I bought a nzxt 219 elite mid tower case and it comes with to fans facing out... and they are located at the top back of the case, one on the top and one on the back panel. I have a msi r9 380 4gb, an AMD Athlon 8k something and I don't plan on over clocking so it will just have the stock cooler. So will I need more fans or should I try to turn one of the fans around or something? Also there is no dust filters on the fan or case any where.

Answer
Typo

It's a nzxt 210 elite not 219

Leave it stock

Run the machine and monitor the temps.
If things start to get toasty then you will have to do something.

Umm I know this will sound stupid but...

What would I moniter it with? A thermometer, a program... pop it open and stick my hand in it?

I own a laser spot thermometer.

There are software based apps but I tend to want to read all other parts to find the hot areas.

Monitor

I have an old copy of SIW portable which I keep on optical.
Don't know if it's still available.

Plug 'pc temp monitor' into google....pick one.

Read the fine print so you don't install something extra.

Thx

I have a freind now that I think of it who has a laser thermometer, I might hit borrow his and see if it will be fine, I think that I will turn one of the fans around and move it to another spot on the case as well.
