Silverstone FM181. They are IMO the best larger fans you can buy.

A quick search on newegg shows this fan

SILVERSTONE FM181 180mm Case Fan

@ 65-150 CFM (cubic feet per minute)

.... this is just from newegg.ca selection. I'm sure there is more powerful out there.

The AP181's are pretty good too. Similar RPM and has Silverstone's air channeling grill on them.

I have 2 Ap181's but one of them only runs at low rpm for some reason, so i was looking for something better.

There should be a switch on the cable to switch between 700RPM and 1200RPM.

It may be mounted to the case some place then, I think on the top or rear?

Silverstone is really the only choice if you want high-CFM.

I think NZXT has a low RPM 180mm and maybe Bitfenix too.
