I have this case... http://www.scan.co.uk/products/rasurbo-basicandcase-bc-13-black-atx-midi-tower-chassis-w-o-psu
I was wondering what kind of fans I should get as I'm considering putting a gtx470 into it (and I've heard these are hot...)
In the case atm I'm using a OCZ stealthXstream2 600w PSU, amd athlon quad core, a SSD and a HDD. I have an aftermarket CPU cooler but what case fans should I use/will work?
Thanks :)

Bit of a crappy case. Could fit in a couple of small 90mm fans?

Yup - got it in a barebones bundle before I knew anything... Any fans in particular and where would they fit? I can see one fan 'position' at the back of the case.

I normally have 1 sucking in air at front (saves hoovering) and one at back blowing out. look at case plastic for arrow indicating which way airflow will be. Side case blowing out as well (check temps whilst trying different positions) :lol not like that.

I would get a 120mm and a 92mm fan, it depends if you have any fans installed at the moment. I would recommend artic cooling.

Theres always fans for around £2.

The only fan I have atm is an artic cooling freezer pro rev2 CPU cooler. Where could I install one in the front though... :P

The case you have currently says that it can fit 1x 120mm and 1x 92mm. Look at your case manual or just try find the holes in the case.

Ok thanks will have a look. I assume there is no difference between a 120mm cpu fan and 120mm case fan other than the price (_;) ?

One intake one exhaust. Make sure your cables aren't all over the place as well as this will inhibit airflow.

Taken from manufacturers website:

Front fans (internal) 1x 80, 92, or 120 mm (optional)
Rear fans (internal) 1x 80 or 92 mm (optional)
