Does anyone know how I can find this fan?
There are many types of fans. Ball bearing, sleeve bearing, etc. Each of them are still fans, just different types. You can buy any company. Make sure to compare the noise to performance ratio.
Fan 1- 75 CFM at 34 dBa
Fan 2- 68 CFM at 23 dBA
Even though the first fan movies more air, it's louder. With option 2 you only lose a little power, but a lot of sound. You don't want your computer sounding like a wind tunnel.
