Just remember, if you are putting them on an HSF, the air has to be forced through fins. A.K.A static pressure>CFM. I recommend the Scythe Ultra Kazes if they'll fit (they are 38mm deep). I've read very good things about them. 25mm depth fans aren't going to have as good of static pressure as 38mm, but you just have to check around. I have heard of Nexus and a few other brands, but never researched them myself.

100+ CMF Fans at FrozenCPU.com

I've bought through them a few times and I love their stuff. Bit overpriced, but they also do custom sleeving and various other random stuff.

OK then, which one would be the best?
Im thinkin 2 of the 38's one on each side, and then a 20 on the bottom.
I cant fit anything on the top, as my case barely closes as it is.
Is this so much it would defeat the purpose, or would it work?

You want to force cool air to the HS, than the pull hot air from it. The cold air will absorb some heat and be pushed out the side of the heat sink rather than pulling hot air from the HS and pushing it out to the case somewhere for the fan to suck in more ambient temperature'd air.

Those cable clips are kinda cool, but I just use zip-ties and stick-on zip-tie holders.
