Haha. I didn't even see that! Wow, maybe I need to have my eyes checked.

anyways if it is performance you want...

Newegg.com - Delta TFB1212GHE-F00 120mm Case Fan - Case Fans

Try 220 CFM :|

that'll make a blizzard in your PC

That Cooler Master fan with a 90CFm rating looks like the ticket, if not this Aerocool fan worked great for me
Aerocool Xtreme Turbine 2000 Black 120mm LED Fan at Xoxide!

Molex would be needed because I don't have any 3 pin case fan connectors left (1 on my mobo, I know WTF? right! that's why i need an asus soon).

I have a couple of the high flow Yate Loons. They really move some air, but are kind of loud.

Papst are also very good, great bearings (they even make airplane jet engine turbines!) and one of the best size/cfm/db (real) ratios around. They are on the expensive side though, and I have no idea where there are any models with LEDs, I like to keep it as LED-free as possible inside my case.

Just stating, as said in my other posts "I'm too lazy to do that"
I guess what I'm saying is that applies here too, newegg makes you spend more on shipping for cables than their cost.
