Default Case cooling

I need to buy a few fans soon and I'm wondering if there are any good ones that dont use a 4 pin power cable as I don't have many of those to spare. What about the little connectors on my mobo that are labled "fan" or whatever, what are those called? I'd like some fans that use that power connector. Also, any additional cooling suggestions appreciated. I also thought this product was a great idea, what do you guys think?Cooling device

I mean you could use it for your case cooling but its so small, its point less.Its point is to suck in the air from your card to keep the warm air out in cool are in. I would get a normal fan that matches others in your pc and get one with that adapter and give that a try.

I will probably buy that but what about other fans? Are there any that use the built in mobo connector?

slot coolers barely help, just save up for a zalman 770-cu, then you'll notice a big difference
