    Really any decent 80mm ball bearing (last longer than sleeve bearings) 30-50 cfm fan should do the job for you and some can be had with LED's if you so desire. ;)

    I've used a few Thermaltake SMART CASE FAN II's in my case so that I can adjust the airflow in my case to suit the varying conditions here. :)

    Smart Fan II's are pretty nice. I would say try and pick up a couple of those. But basically what Wiggo said, pretty much any 8cm fan will help your cooling.

    Yeah I was. I got the first one and it died after three days of use. I was in the middle of playing some cs and then locked up and died..no post. I rma'd and got my new one. I installed XP and had it running... rebooted after installing the newest video driver. When it came back up into windows.....it locked up. I restarted and that mobo was dead to...no post. So, I decided to go with a different mobo company...and chose the soyo board...... I could not be happier :D
