Any 120mm fan would work.

Well I'm using these 140mm fans on mine, and they're super quiet:
Newegg.com - AeroCool SilverLightning140mm 140mm White LED Case Fan - Retail

It's a challenge though, fitting in when you have a mid-tower.

This one looks pretty good:

You can attach up to two fans. It wasn't really meant to hold 140mm fans, but i kinda stretched the fan clips to manage.

The dimensions are similar to my case, so it should fit.

thats the one I use on my TR 120 Extreme.

up to 93.5cfm - really loud at that setting though. I like being able to adjust it with the knob. I checked the temps, there's no difference running it at half way versus full blast (at casual use) - maybe a run of prime95 would prove that statement wrong.
