Such as those like newegg etc; only Aussie.

I'm looking at buying some 150 - 200CFM fans (three) to crank into my chassis, 2 rear, 1 front. MSY and Leader Systems don't sell any, and I'm sure as hell not going to wait for Ingram Micro to ship me some. I know the fans are cheap and fricking insanly awesome at cranking air flow.

If I can't find any, I'll just rip them out the servers at work and give work money for 'em.

Any particular brand fans you guys suggest? I've always been in love with Thermaltake and Coolermaster fans, Antecs are ok but seem a bit flimsy and fake. Although to be honest I don't give a rats ass about the brand of fans lol, aslong as one of them has red LEDs as it'll be replacing my front 140mm, which has red LEDs lol (No I don't care it has red LEDs, but may aswell keep the case looking how it came)

So yeah, know any good Australian Online IT sites? Can you suggest a good brand of 150 - 200CFM fans?

FYI, Fans that will be replaced are the following... Front (intake) : 140 x 140 x 25 mm red LED fan, 1300rpm, 17dBA Rear (exhaust) : Two 120 x 120 x 25 mm TurboFan, 1300rpm, 17dBA ^For dimensions if you lads feel like suggesting some nice fans to replace them :P

Nope, found some in Altech that were rated 134CFM, they just don't have any 140mm fans.

Delta make 120mm fans that push out over 200 CFM, but that airflow comes at cost. Are you really sure you want these in a desktop environment? I experimented with Vantec Tornado fans a few years back and you could hear them through the floor...and I don't mean a dull whine that you can ignore (which something like a hard drive will do if your PC is on the floor), I mean loudly enough to stop someone sleeping. And IIRC those Vantecs only put out something like 120 CFM for the 80mm ones I had, and yet you're looking at louder fans than those...

All I can say is good luck lol.

Oh, and 140mm isn't a standard size so you won't find many of them, so you're even less likely to find one with a properly high output.

I don't care actually. I'll connect them to a fan header anyway, so I can easily turn them down.

I looked for some deltas with a high CFM rate in the sizes im after, I found none. let-alone trying to find some in Australia somewhere, or even an Australian online website.

that kaze is a wussy fan. Get some panaflo fans or deltas if you want real CFM altech.com.au had a few 120s of decent CFM, 110 was the biggest I found there. Really I suppose 100CFM is fine, But I'd much rather bigger if I could find it. Ultimately I'll achieve having 150+CFM front intake, and 100 or so rear exhaust. The rest of the chassis fans will be intakes and stock. I may also get another 120MM rear 150+CFM So I'll have 300CFM of air into the case, and 100~CFM out via the single 120mm exhaust.

Its better to have a good ballance of air throughout your case rather than brute force of fans. I removed the panaflos I had in my case and used the stock fans on low and temps only went up a couple degrees.
