Google shows up lots here - have a look at
However, you'll need to watch out for noise levels with these, so
alternatively you could do what I did - I bought a 120mm fan and cut a
hole in the top of my desktop PC case to install it above the PCI and
video cards.

Funnily enough, it occurred to me only this week that I may have
installed it the wrong way up!  I'd be interested to hear people's
comments (sorry if this steals your thread a bit, but if you decide to
install a fan this way you'll need to know the answer to this anyway).
I have a Zalman power supply (which I presume expels air from the
case?) so I should have installed the fan on the top of the case to
pull air in, rather than suck air out, shouldn't I? That way the air
flow would be working properly. At the moment, I think I might have 2
fans fighting against each other to suck air out of opposite ends of
the case. Comments anyone?
