It probably has at least 3 or 4 fan headers but, even if it doesn't, you can use fan splitters or fan hubs to have more fans.

Do you know what Motherboard you have?

You have to buy them extra look for "4-pin Y fan header splitter".

 

Now, about the case I'm not sure if you know this but, that case has like 4 or maybe 5 versions at this point and, to be honest, I have no idea which one is good.

Maybe the H500M is the best but again, I'm not sure.

 

Could you give me a link to the prebuilt you have? You probably won't need a fan-splitter because most Motherboards have at least 3 headers nowadays.

Is it even a standard form factor motherboard? Looks like it's mATX, if you're lucky. But be aware that it can be a proprietary form factor with proprietary connectors.

I can't really find anything on the motherboard on the site. Could you maybe take off the side panel and take a pic of it? Maybe that way we can figure it out.

Splitters can be a bad idea on OEM boards, you can easily nuke the fan header.

 

You would be better off getting a fan hub that connects directly to the PSU.

Yeah, I thought it was just a standard board at first.
