You know of the fans will not fit inside the case that you can still ise the same hole and have the fans on the outside if the case. Well just look funny but will still work.
On mine I move the fan on the side so it blows in on the cpu. It came with it blowing out but turning it around and adding one to the front to bring air in and the another to the back that blows out did the best at cooling. I got the most cooling by turning the side fan to blow in.

??? Fans costs $7~10 (with lights or with out) at CompUSA or most computer shops.... Radioshack is about double the price.

$1 per fan... I wouldn't expect much. With delivery and such, you save $10. Antec fans generally go for $10~15.

A long time ago, I suggested taking the cover off the machine and running it for at least several hours to see what happened to the temperature. If the processor is still overheating without the cover on the case, the fans will do little or nothing to solve the problem. I'd do this first, before I started hacking the case...
