What Case Fan Is Right For Me

So I have a question about what fan is right for me. I have the NZXT Phantom case.... as some of you may know it has hard small holed mesh covering intake and outtake fan areas.... I need to know what type of fan can not only pull air but also push air through this mesh? These fans must push tons of air, I don't want care about noise I just want a fan that will push like crazy.

Sizes I need:
3x 120mm (2 side intakes 1 outtake) They can be different models and makes
1x 140mm (front intake)

Budget:
120mm fans MAX PER FAN: $15
140mm fan MAX: $20

Websites Preferred:
Frys.com
newegg.com

The intakes are being pulled through mesh and my default nzxt fans dont pull as well as i'd like.... the outtake fan has larger holes compared to the intake ones though... here is the cases website link

I would like blue led's but I don't need them... if a fan without led's would perform better than one with them... I want the one without led's... mainly because I can buy seperate LED's to install.

Thank you guys very much!

    I'll run that as my exhaust.... if I ran it on the side fans it would overpower the 140 from the front and blow the air out of the other side instead of going through the case

    edit: Just saw the sleeve bearing... I'd also prefer ball bearing on my fans because I have heard they last longer
