Whats your budget and what do you plan on cooling. If you want the best air cooler on the market get the Thermalright Ultra 120 extreme and a good high flow 120mm fan.

I don't think that supports socket 478.

This will work:
Newegg.com - ZALMAN CNPS7000B-ALCU 92mm 2 Ball Cooling Fan - Retail

where could I mount 120mm case fan? ...there are holes for 80mm but 120mm will do better, right..
