need help locating a cpu fan for slimline desktop

I'm thinking about building a new desktop using a Cooler Master Micro ATX case (model ATC-620C-BX1) and don't know which CPU fan to use.  Most I've seen seem to be to big to fit in a slim line case.  It is only 5.5" high.

I've tried to get information from Cooler Master, but haven't heard back from them.  Can anyone recommend a good fan?

If you specify the cpu, that would be good.  Have you considered http://www.thermaltake.com/

Yep that would help :)  It's an Athlon XP 2500+ Barton core.  I've built a few mini towers and I've used Thermaltake and Vantec and it seems like they are too big for a slime line case.  Is it just my imagination?

I've looked on the site and saw solutions for 1U and 2U servers, so they must have slim versions, too.

Fans for servers will work for desktops - it's the cpu that's important.  From the link I posted: http://www.thermaltake.com/coolers/rackmount/menuk7.htm

That's what I was looking for.  Don't know why I can't find that on the Thermaltake site.

I thought my last post did just that?  Was there a problem with them?

Yes, and my four links led to four different heatsinks for different CPUs, which were all practically found on Callandor's website.
