Default cheap reliable fan?

Summer is a bit tough on my computer. After cleaning out the dust I plan to drill some holes in the side panel and install a fan.

It doesn't have to be powerful, just get some more air circulation. Also I don't want it to use too much power. Does anyone have any recommendations?

Default Re: cheap reliable fan?

it seems you are wanting a 80mm or 120mm fan and these are some options from newegg... - COOLER MASTER R4-L2S-122B-GP 120mm 4 BLUE LED LED Case Fan - Retail This one is 120mm - COOLER MASTER R4-S8R-20AK-GP 80mm Case Fan - Retail This one is 80mm

or... if you don't care about changing fan speed then this might be a very cheap choice... - Unincom U8025 80mm Case Fan - Retail
