I want to see some recommendations on what case fans do the job. I want to install some fans on my case that will blow a tornado in my case no matter what noise they put out. I just want my case to be free from being over heated. Any recommendations or advice is appreciated. Thanks.

Careful your fans aren't too powerful; large, powerful, filterless fans will move so much dust through your machine that the components will roast under a thick insulating blanket of debris.

hell yeah, but you can find better,
Not for the money though
FBA12G12H rated at 103cfm
the H at the end denotes HIGH ,For "Thats too high turn it down"

If you search for FBA12G12H on google you see a lot of very strange high prices for these things ,wierd
