Anybody have a suggestion as to a top mounted 120mm case fan?; mine gave it up tonight; seized up and the fan detached. Luckily, I saw that it wasn't turning and shut down to check it out and when I opened the case it fell off.

I'm leaning towards a Thermaltake or Corsair for about 35 ish dollars; thoughts?

Yes. Any 120mm fan is fine. Newegg is a good place or Amazon.

$35 for a 120mm case fan? Does it come with gold plated fins? Sci-fi bearings from outa space? Kidding... There are fans strarting at ~ $7 on Amazon with plenty good ratings like this one (link).

Actually, Corsair and Thermal take both offer fans with pretty solid specs and bearings are what I'm particular looking for; this one lasted six years so I have no complaints.
