The rear 120mm CPU exhaust fan which came stock on my 500R finally gave out today - any recommendations for a replacement? If I understand CFM vs. static pressure correctly I want something with a high CFM right?

I'd ideally like to find something better than the OEM fan. I've got a few CM 120mm R4s in front and a 200mm Megaflow on the side panel, as well a cheap 120mm at the top and bottom as intakes, so maintaining positive pressure shouldn't be an issue. I've got 2 6970s in CF which are quite noisy even during low intensity activity like browsing, so dB isn't a big problem on the new fan provided it's not crazy loud.

Are things running hotter with no exhaust fan?
