Hi,

Check http://www.koolnquiet.co.uk/

they have 92/120mm Nexus and the 120mm globe fan.

NOTE : Thanks to the forum for finding these as i'd been looking for ages and found them listed in the Deals, Vendors & Classifieds section

I've used Kustompcs and dorothybradbury a few times are they are both excellent (especially good customer service).

For future reference there are loads of places to check out in this sticky...

Ordered a 92mm nexus to mod my zalman 7000 from koolnquiet on thursday and arrived today.

Good customer service, nice guy that runs it too.

BUT their site still doesn't accept online ordering, he has to contact you after making the order to arrange payment. Not too much of a big deal though, just strange to have that setup instead of normal convenient online ordering.

Oh one more thing is that the postage doubles if you order say 2 nexus 92mm fans, from £2.50 to £5 ;/

Which is a little steep considering to post 2 fans. So i only ordered one (even though i wanted to replace my 92mm exhaust too)

personally i dont like koolnquiet

the guy is nice, but he is very expensive considering his site hasn;t had much work done on it and he works from home.

i can see some things, as he has to import certain products from other countries, but still, hes expensive.

I truly recommend Dorothy Bradbury. Best service I have gotten anywhere. Good prices and cheap shipping.
[size=75]Just because I didn't respond to your post doesn't mean you were right. It just means I was speechless as to how to reply to such an idiotic statement

I too would recommend Dorothy. I bought a Comair Rotron 172mm fan through her, although it doesn't perhaps fit with the silent aims of this forum.

Yeah unfortunately she only sells panaflo fans too, which I'm not too sure are even the older Japan Panaflos.

The china 'flos are seem to be worse in bearing noise and other such noises judging from other people's experiences in this forum.

Even one of the japan panaflo's I bought from her clicks, but the other I have in my seasonic 300watter is fine.

Dorothy Bradbury's service is great and she knows her product details well.
I ordered from her a few months ago and she told me that all her fans are 'new-process' ones made in China. I've got four and they're a good bit noisier than the Nexus's (all 80mm).

I've used both Dorothy Bradbury and Kustom PCs and can recommend both.

Some Australian distributors ship to the UK. pccasegear.com is a place I like to get stuff from, but they don't have the PSU you're after.
