Look for the Vantec Tornado
or the CoolerMaster Dual Storm
or One of these this actually acts like an extension on your heatsink and it looks cool

These are the BEST fans you can put on a heatsink.

I don't think Xoxide ships Internationaly so you probably have to find these somewhere else. I think ships international.I Hope this Helps

Thermaltake has a decent 80mm case fan, blue led, with temp or dial control for speed. Its 8$ US on newegg.

If you want a good fan go for the tornado as listed above by musjunk. If you want a good deal on a fan with a controller and a case blower then take a look at this thermaltake kit.
