    What's wrong with the fan that comes with it?
    .
    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    You need to define your goals.
    Do you want the lowest temps or the quietest operation?

    Now thats cruel

    But if noise is not a constraint try one of these http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Im...0_dsc04644.jpg
    Hopefully size will not be a constraint considering the diameter of the fan is 128 inches(over 10 feet in diameter)....I'm sure clocker could think of some mods to help it fit

    "Hah", indeed.
    Lynx asked the most pertinent question so far...what IS wrong with the stock fan?
    Until you can pinpoint/define the shortcomings of the system (and by this I mean the entire in-case environment) you cannot begin to address them.
    Having chased the cooling dragon for a few years myself I can appreciate the siren call of low temps- before you succumb, gather some baseline data or you'll forever just be shooting in the dark.
