Default Case fan manufacturers?

Who makes good case fans? I'm looking for a 120mm and was thinking of purchasing either an Antec, Thermaltake, or Aspire. Are those reliable?

Im using 5 antec case fans and they have done a good job of creating a nice strong airflow in my Raidmax 868.

I have 2 antec pro 80mm fans and they're great! A little noisy, but thats probably because my old case's intake holes arent very good, causing the fans to struggle. They're a bargain at £2.50 from www.ebuyer.com! (that site also sells to the US i think)
