Default Fans and their placement

I am looking for some advice.

I need better air flow in my machine. I have a full tower with 2 CD Rom Drives and a Hard Drive.

Assuming i have a limit of say 5 fans can someone suggest the best place for them to optimize the airflow?

i dont have my camera on me but i could do a diagram of my computer and see if someone can point out the best places to put fans.

Thanks.

Probably 2 in the front (intakes) one on the side, maybe blowing on your vid card (intake) and 2 in the back for exhaust... maybe also cutting a hole in the top would work, add another intake.
