2 intake fans- how important is it for me to change them?

Front: 2 x 120 / 2 x 140mm
Top: 1 x 120mm (1 Aer F120 Case Version included) / 1 x 140mm
Rear: 1 x 120mm (1 Aer F120 Case Version included)

 

you can place 2 fans in the front as intakes and have your current two ones as exhaust. (My advice)

As the title suggests, I have 2 fans taking in air. Normally Id just change them but as one is right above my cpu, id need to remove the cooler to change it. How important would it be for me to change the fans/ how dangerous is it to my pc to have bad airflow? Cheers.

No, but they're both bringing air into my case. Nothing is circulating it out.

add a 3rd fan at the rear of the case for exhaust - should be fine
