That's close enough for me!

The CM Stacker 832 can hold up to, I believe, 9 x 120mm fans in total. It already comes with 4 or 3 x 120mm fans. Two in front, one on top, and one at back. You have the option to put 4 x 120mm or 140mm fans, on the side panel...and add 1 or 2 more 120mm fans, in the front.

edit: Nevermind, the CM Stacker 832 comes with only 2 x 120mm fans. One at the front, and one at the back.

Yeah, I'll throw in a 140mm in the side. Just for that nice cold air for the 8800. 60 CFM and only 19 Db. Impressive.

More then one side fan isn't worth it, right?

Well I guess it would depend on the temperatures...but with one 140mm, along with 2 x 120mm, that should be enough good airflow.

I think I'll go with an 120 mm fan on top too. Since heat rises, I guess it makes sense then. Oh, and what about thermal paste. I just read that link in your sig and AS5 isn't the best. Since I've been paying attention to tech (6 years?) I haven't heard anyone question Artic Silver superiority.

AS5 is great, but not the best. MX-1 is the best in terms of price, but it's not available everywhere, compared to AS5.

If you want MX-1, here is where I just ordered mine:
