I have corsair fans. two intake, two outlet.

From what it looks like you would need a 120mm (12cm) fan.

Good cooling fan brands are:
Corsair
Scythe
Noctua
Antec

I got 4 of these. They are quiet edition cooling fans from Corsair, Really good in my personal opinion.

Enermax also makes really good fans; I use some on my heatsink. Arctic Cooling also makes good fans, they excel for their price bracket and in their performance-quietness ratio. (Their fans are also really quiet when place up against a radiator or heatsink.)

From what it looks like you can hold two 120mm at the top. I would have them as your outlet fans, blowing all the hot air coming from your motherboard, NB, etc out of your system. You can also put two 120mm fans at the side of your case. I Would recommend that you config these as intake so that it keeps your SB and GPU cool.

Remember bottom half intake (front and side)
Top half outlet (hot air rises so top and exhaust)

hope this helps :)
