How many fans for optimal airflow in Define R6?

All of them.

But honestly, 2 fans (one in front and one in back) is enough for 95% of users as 3 or more fans won't see a large increase on cooling.

Linus Tech Tips actually made a good video about this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8OmkmluAYAQ

Yep, that's what I'm thinking as well. :)

And that Case has BIG 140mm fans at the front and the back!

It comes with 3 x 140mm fans which will do just fine for most users.

The answer is it depends. 3 or 4 fans will almost certainly do it. 1 exhaust and 2 intakes for most builds, add a top exhaust and maybe an intake for really hot ones.
