You'll probably have to use one or two 80mm fan for the front of the case. How about these?

no, get a tri-blade delta, 3 blades means less noise.

you can change the direction of airflow by turning the fan around. How many fans can you fit in the front? How big are the fan holes in the front of the case? what case do you have? Delta is a very good company, they make fans that push a lot of air at a low noise level due to the fact that they have only 3 blades compared to 9 bladed fans.

The pic below is of the front of my case (sorry I am not sure what the case is excatly called). As you can see the oonly real place I could put a fan/s is if I remove those 3 panels under my DVD Burner. The measurements of the 3 panels is: 12.5cm by 14.5cm. Are the fans able to go in there?

Thanx again

i dont think you can fit fans there, you need to open the side panel and look inside.

Thanx for the help
