Where to buy 12v low amp fans

I am looking to buy 12v low amp fans for my fridge and freezer. Both are 120mm cases. One is 25mm thick and the other is 18mm thick.

The OEM charges a fortune for these things.

We use small computer muffin fans purchased at Radio Shack or other like component stores.

Adler Barbour wanted $75 for a fridge fan. I got the exact same fan for $10 here.

They don't normally sell retail but sent me two that they had as samples.

Computer case fans are cheap, use realtively few watts and run off 12 volts.

You can buy them on e-bay by the dozens for cheap. I used them in dorade vents to help prevent mildew in the boat. I hooked them up to the divert leg on the Flexcharge 25 solar controller. So during the day in full sun they would come on every 10 minutes for 30 seconds or so.
