If money wasn't an issue and I wanted to put 8 fans in a nice big case I would go for eight of these (wait for the link to load, it takes about 15 seconds) 120mm x 38mm SilenX fans. They move 72CFM each but crucially, do so while only making 14dBa of noise output. If you're going to have 8 fans, you want them to be as quiet as possible, or you are going to suffer from a perpetual ear-bashing. Also, 72CFM x 8 = 576CFM, which will cool most computer components down to near ambient I would of thought.
