I put a 120mm in the lower front of my case, and mounted a 80mm at the end of the housing/caging of the floppy drives inside my case. I duct taped the screw holes and what not on the floppy drive holder/cage/house so it's only take air from the outside side the case. Needless to say, I took out the little panel cover things where the floppy drives go. So now I got like a 2inch tall, 4 inch wide, and 4.5 inch deep air "tunnel" thing bringing outside air to the middle/center of my case basically right on my CPU. My CPU temps are either 25 or 26. The board turns the CPU fan off whenever it gets at 25C. But once it turns off, the temp goes to 26 and then the fan kicks back on and it goes back down to 25.... a never ending cycle.
Also... mounting the 80mm fan was simple. I barely screwed in the top two screws (so that they're extending from the fan), and then slip the two screws between the floppy drive cage and the optical drive cage. And it's completely stable there. So no drilling or whatever.

You can see the middle, square housing thing for the floppy drives.... that's where I've got it mounted. And since I don't use a floppy drive, it's a nice mod for the case
