You could get some noisy (29dB) fans off of www.newegg.com for about $2 each.

I dont suggest any of those fans. If you want something good, here are my suggestions. These are all the best 80mm fans on the market.

This is the Vantec Tornado, i have one for my CPU. It has 84-CFM. I know alot of people that use these.

http://www.frozencpu.com/fan-10.html

Here is another good 80mm fan. It has 50-CFM. For future advice, with air cooling. Never get any type of fan with under 50-CFM.

Those Vantec Tornados are 55 dB! As FrozenCPU says: "It is loud, very loud." I've got several of the 120 mm Vantec Stealth fans at 21 dB (and 53 CFM) and a number of Enermax fans with speed control. I get pretty decent cooling with them turned down a bit, and I can stand to be in the same room as the PC.

If you want to go with the Vantec Tornados, maybe check out CoolerGuys.com since they're cheaper buy a few dollars. They appear to be cheaper than Frozen CPU on most of fans. I have bought a lot of fans and round drive cables there.

Thermaltake fans are good. I would go with those, plus the xoxide fan bundles are really good, 33CFM isnt too sweet.

Thermaltake are nice and noisy

The tornado's are 11x ACTUALLY noiser than the stealth case fans though.
