Replacement 120mm fan for Sunbeam Core-Contact

I am looking for a 120x25mm replacement fan my Sunbeam Core-Contact Freezer. The original fan is not PWM and I am looking for a PWM one to be able to control its speed with my MB. The specs of the original fan are the following:

-120x25mm fan
-2000 rpm
-90.65 CFM

The main difficulty seems to be to find a fan with the same or better CFM output. The only one I found so far is the following:

Delta AFB1212SH-PWM 120mm Super High Speed


120x120x25mm, 113.11 CFM @ 3400 RPM, 46.5 dBA, 12v DC, 4 pin PWM connector

So it got the CFM output, but it is super loud. I guess I could slow it down, but I doubt that it will output 90 CM at 2000 rpm.

Any better idea?

The CCF comes with a speed adjuster...Did you not get one?

I totally can't hear mine over the 5 case fans and 2 4870s :)

Yes I got one, but I want the fan speed to be controlled based on CPU temperature and my MB only supports PWM fans. I use this computer as a server so I don't always have physical access to it.

That Scythe SY1225SL12SH would be perfect if it was PWM, but it is not unfortunately...

^ Have you tried via voltage control for fans in BIOS?

Yes I have tried to set the fan speed manually in the BIOS and also to play with the settings of the "Smart Fan" mode of my MB (EVGA X58 Classified), but it did not have any effect on the fan speed. I called EVGA customer support and they told me that I needed PWM fans for the BIOS to control their speed.
