Memory Express in Calgary (www.memoryexpress.com) has a good assortment of Panaflo fans and various heatsinks at their store. See my post in this forum.

I think the link should be http://www.ncix.com shouldn't it? The .ca link does not seem to be valid.

La centrale informatique has standard/black Evercase chassis at decent prices. Also carries Antec and Vantec.

CIPC (no online ordering yet, phone and store only) has Antec, Asaka, Panaflo, Papst, Vantec, Zalman. They also do custom mods.

MutePC now carries Noiseblocker fans - 80mm S1,2,3,4:

http://www.pcmuet.net/product_info.asp?iPID=375

If you check the threads, I don't think these are going to beat Panaflo's, but may be worth a try.

Vibe Computers now has the Papst 120mm fan (55.9cfm, 30dBa).

http://www.vibecomputers.com/index.cfm?loc=iview&if=n&vID=191106

$28, which is a pretty good price I think for a Papst (it's cheaper then most 120mm fans at other stores)

autodeletepro links upthread are invalid. The right one is http://www.adpmods.com

They now have 80mm Panaflo L1A fans for $9.95, 3-pin tail included.

They also carry 120mm aluminum Evercools (discussed here) for $22.

This list is incomplete without Canadian Tire :D

part #41-9333-6
TrimBrite Door Edge Molding
Cars, Vans & Light Trucks
Silver Colour

I used it to trim 120mm fan hole in my Antec 3700AMB, after I cut out the stamped fan grill. The moulding fitted perfectly. It's flexible and self-adhering.

$4

=======

Two+ years later.... added some pictures. :lol:

Note that it's made of vinyl. It's flexible, but not soft. If you want to completely decouple the fan from the case, you have to figure out how to mount the fan so that it doesn't touch the moulding.

I thought this would be worth a mention. And I just bought my Barracuda 120GB w/8MB buffer a week ago? Bloody #!@$!

I discovered Computer Link Systems sells Evercase 4252 without PSU for reasonable prices:

<http://www.computerlinksystems.com/>

Unfortunately for me, they're located in Ontario.

It just means you don't have to pay PST. :D You will have to pay to get it shipped, of course...

Bigfoot now carries SilenX Power Supplies and Fans. From their website Signa Computers in Scarbourgh look like they carry 80 and 120mm Acoustifans. On a word of caution I have had a bad experience with Signa and an RMA for a motherboard.
