Alright hey guys I should be receiving my Jtag at the beginning of the week and I was planning on removing the DvD drive and placing a fan where the DvD drive used to sit. What size fan (and brand) and where should I solder it to to power?

An 80mm fan works great for me. Doesn't really matter what brand. I connect it to the DVD drive power cord (even though it's not recommended) because I don't have a soldering iron.

Could you show a tutorial or some pictures of that set up?

Not really much of a tutorial but I taped my fan to the heatsink using doubleside foam tape. Then connect the wires to the DVD power cable usin the same method as doing a 12v fan mod and connected a ground wire to the memory card slot
