Default Looking for a 120mm Fan

Hey everyone. I've been looking for a 120mm fan to use as an exhaust. Too many fans make claims that end up not being true, so I wanted to hear from people that actually have experience with them. I'm not a hardcore PC gamer or overclocker, so I just wanted something that is quiet, but also actually has decent airflow.

I was looking into the Arctic Fan 12, and I really want to get it. But it seems impossible for me to find. I haven't found any US distributors, and any other outside of the US won't ship it here. I found one site that sold it for $20, but $40 shipping.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

if you are looking for quiet 120mm fans, i would go for either a nexus or S-flex fan. The Nexus if the quietest 120mm x 25mm fan i've heard and the specs are right on. The S-flex is almost just as quiet, but blows more air, and is cheaper. I've had no experience with the akasa amber fans, but from what i heard they are very quiet and have great air to noise ratios too. Here are some links:
