I would think if the fan is working you may need another one or two for the case only.

If you are running 8 cm fans, maybe it's a good idea to buy 12 cm fans, if your case can hold them. If not, you can create holes by yourself.

Be sure to place fans in the correct direction: if all fans blow air internally and no fan blow air externally, your case will become an oven very soon.

You can also get a fan controller to speed up and slow down your fans as you see fit.
