Default Help! High CFM fan needed!

Greetings all, I could sure use a little help. The 120mmX25mm fan on my coolit freezone elite has crapped out. The pump is fine and I'm still getting some cooling due to the 5 remaining 120mm fans I have but the freezone's heatsink is pretty toasty. My idle temp is in the mid 40's. I'm looking for recommendations for a variable speed 3 pin fan capable of 100 CFM with a max speed of 2500RPM. I'd like to scoot down to Canada Computers today to pick one up. Any suggestions would be very much appreciated.

Thanks.

Thanks, but I need this today. I bounced back and forth between CC and ncix to get specs and the closest I could find in the Kaze ultra 2000rpm 89cfm. It'll have to do for now.

Those fans are junk. you'll regret it.

Never used the 2000 RPM Ultra Kazes before, but the 3000 RPM ones have been working for me quite well. I wouldn't call them junk, they move a lot of air for me...

I'd go for these instead:
NCIX.com - Buy Scythe S-FLEX SFF21G 120MM Cooling Fan 1900RPM 35.0DBA 75CFM FDB 3/4PIN - SFF21G In Canada.

or these:
NCIX.com - Buy Scythe Slip Stream Kaze Jyuni 120MM Fan 1600RPM 88.1CFM 33DBA - SY1225SL12H In Canada.

I went shopping today so the freezone elite is being temporarily retired. I'll buy a fan at a later date. I guess it's time to break out my ghetto test bench and the boreas that has been sitting idle.

Intel 875Kapoof!
