Default how to find where to buy computer fan

I need to replace a small (@ 44 millimeter or 1.75 inch) fan in my computer, but I can't find the fan on the internet. It's made by Aopen (yes, I tried their website). For some reason, it says "sleeve bearing" on the fan. (I don't know why, it's a fan, not a sleeve bearing.) Of course, it runs on 12 DC volts.

Does anyone know how I can find this fan?

sleave bearing is just the type of bearing the fan uses to keep it from locking up while powered on. Another type is ball, but the one you saw will work, but try the link above first. You might find it cheaper on the egg.
