Any ideas on good fans to control temperature besides DigiQ?

We have a 4 cfm DigiQ and live in Denver area, mile high city. We just smoked 4 butts and the 4cfm fan didn't seem to hold the temp. for 4 butts as well as it did for 3 or less at a time. We are thinking we may need a 10cfm but don't want to go to the expense right now. Any ideas of other fans that could work or how to improvise this one to work?

    Just do it old school - who needs a fan? I've cooked 5 butts at once with no fan and no problems.  It just takes some practice.

    Do you have an old computer you're not using? What if you took the power supply and a cooling and or two and made something?

    WOW. I only go back to my Draftmaster II pen plotter.

    You are old school. I'm impressed.
