Case fan help

So.. I have a Thermaltake Black Widow V9 case which has a mounting port for a 60, 70 or 80 mm fan just behind the motherboard, basically between the motherboard tray and the side panel. Does anyone know where I might find such a fan, led or not?

Also, when running Everquest 2, my GPU temp rises up to around 60 Degrees Celcius. Is that normal and if not, or if so, can anyone suggest something to aid in cooling it further?

A GPU temperature of 60 degrees is nothing to worry about.

Ahhh.. I was wondering. When I don't have EQ or any other game running, it normally runs around 38 Celcius, just thought 60 was a tad high.

I'm curious though, why do you want to put a fan behind the motherboard?

Well.. the case is designed to have one. Just thought, the more fans the merrier ;D

To be honest, I've never seen anyone install a fan there. Maybe it would help for cooling down the motherboard, but I have my doubts. The money might be better spent on putting the case fan at one of the other places that are available on the case. That way, it will help to move air through the main open space in the system, helping to cool down all components.
