Where is a good place to buy Panflow fans or any fan for that matter I went to price watch but they have no listing for Panflows atleast . Dot com purchases or retail computer stores , basiclly anywhere I can get them fans for a good deal .

Another quick question I bought a case that came with two fans that only blow like 31cfm I want get the a fan that is stronger , faster and better in every possible way. I don't know how big my current fans are so making an online order now could be a big pain in the !$?.

I want to know if you measure them (like a t.v.) from corner to corner or just directly across the bottom ? I'm not conserned with the thickness of the fans only the perimeter.

Thanks ahead

hey man, i buy all my things usually at www.azzo.com, you can check out their links for fans HERE. also, fans are measured at their diameter, so measure across from the center, and you got the size...like 120mm, that happens to be the size of a cd, spiffy!!! hope that helped ;-)

Generally, the larger the power consumption (or larger current (amp) rating at constant voltage) of a fan, the more powerful it is. Fan sizes are of the length of a side (they are square!) and the thickness of a fan. Thicker fans tend to displace more air than thin ones (just look at the 7000+ rpm Deltas or YS Techs). Most fans last at least 2 years. Branded ones tend to be quieter or lasts longer.
