Keep the fans that come with the case in their current config. Put 1 fan in the front above the other front fan, and put one in the bottom for additional fresh air on the GPU.

Hmm here are the main fans you normally want to get:

x2 Front intakes(120mm or 140mm)

x1 Back exhaust(120mm)

Here are the optional ones:

x2 Top exhaust(120mm or 140mm)

x1 Bottom intake(120mm)

The side panel fans(if your case comes with any, but doesn't seem to have) can be exhaust or intake.
