Corsair Spec-01 airflow?

Hey everyone, I have purchased the Corsair Spec-01 and it only comes with a front LED fan for air intake which I plan to leave there. I'm wondering how many fans is needed to keep my parts cool and where to place them at. I was thinking of purchasing 2 extra fans. One for rear exhaust and the other to be paired up front with the red LED fan. Is this a good airflow setup? Here is the link to the case, there is a photo that illustrates where I can put fans. https://pcpartpicker.com/product/pDphP6/corsair-case-spec01redled

Also what fans would you recommend?
