Default Where's a good place to get a 140mm fan?

Edit: Didn't realize there was already a thread about 140mm fans.

What would be the best place to get fans from in Canada if at all possible?

I got all mine from ncix. Benefit for that is if you can find them elsewhere (ie bestdirect.ca, directcanada.com) you can price match them

I grab either the MassCool LED ones or Aerocool LEd ones from Tigerdirect. However Canada Computers stocks some Lian Li ones that I have to admit I am really impressed with, though not online only in store as far as I can tell.

They are the first fan I've measured that actually under-rate their CFM by 5%.

Any chance anybody would know the quietest of these 140mm fans? Inik's got some Lian Li 140mm that looks interesting but not sure about the noise level compared to the stock 140mm antec 300 tricool which are loud even at 5v in my opinion. Compare them to a scythe slipstream or sflex at 5/7v which are quiet/inaudible in my opinion

Thanks for the help guys. I decided to go with these babies Scythe Ultra Kaze 120MM High Static Pressure Fan 3000RPM 133.6CFM 45.9DBA I bought 3 of them.

They are not as loud as some people say. Obviously you can hear them, but it must be my Cosmos 1000 case, because the noise is not nearly as loud as people have been claiming. And boy do these fans push air. I can feel the air being pushed out of my case big time.

I had to undervolt those babies to even stand the noise. I can't stand them at full speed. Might just be the resistance off the cpu cooler but the one in front of my case is only a kaze maru and thats even loud

Wow. I envy you. I found even the 2000rpm versions to be absolutely unbearable.
