Do I have too many fans?

I have a Silverstone RL05 case and a fan situation. 2-140mm Noctua Industrial 78cfm for the front. 1-120mm NI 70cfm for the rear/top. My dilemma is I also have the 2 stock 140mm fans. Should I top mount them? Omit them? Put the 120mm in the top vs rear? Im basically lost on what to do after the 2 front 140mm fans. Which leaves me 3 fans and 3 places to mount them. The cpu cooler also has a 120mm fan. Any help is appreciated.

Check your temps of the processor, video card, hard drive(s) etc; if they are within specs, no need for additional fan(s).
