Get the AeroCool JetMaster, I just got it today and it's great. 3√ó80mm fans and 1 120mm. It also looks great as well.

i'm not sure, i'll have a look for you

edit: This is basically the same as the AeroCool JetMaster, however the front fan design is slightly different, and that the location of the side 80mm is different.
