I'm not aware of anyone who makes a 12V fan that moves enough CFM to cool that motor. You could probably build your array of smaller fans and make it work, however at that point you risk overloading the alternator at idle, which can damage the FICM.

An aux 12v fan should be fine though, and still provide additional cooling at idle. Ford did include it in some versions of the V10. There is a diagram here of how it mounts:
