Why don't you just go to a local computer shop and buy the fan? By the time you order it and pay for shipping you could've bought a whole new power supply.

Heh, local computer shop. Man, I wish I had one of those. Many of us who don't live by larger cities can't just hop on down to a store and pick up small things. We have to rely on others to tell us if something is a piece of crap.

the stats seem good, most ball bearing fans are higher quality. If they call it a sleeve bearing it is really just a plastic ring put on the fan motor and they seem to be short lived, most after they start to wear make alot of noise before they quit all together.

Look on Ebay (computers/general) there are lots of fans of different types,some are REAL cheep too.I just bought a twin fan 5.25 bay HDD cooler with filter,+ an 80mm ball bearing case fan for 8.00 + 3.00 shipping.You can buy a complete power supply with fan 230v or 250v around 10-15 dollars.

thx, I've had a look around on american sites, and that fan looks at least better than average. Plus this ones in New Zealand which makes it easier for me
jeff - the replacement i got from my local shop was cheep, but its so loud, and they don't bother getting the good ones in
