Which 40mm Fan?

Im making my own ram coolers and i need fans that match the rest of my system,
This is the colour scheme of all my current fans. Does anybody know of any 40mm fans that are 10mm thick and have the same colour scheme?

You dont need a RAM cooler. It's just added noise - RAM doesnt get hot enough to need a fan...

My ram is at 70 degrees and i tested it with a dummy fan and heat sink and it lowered the temp to about 40 degrees. (its server ram).

I take it it doesnt have any form of heatspreader on the RAM?

Could try buying something like:
http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B000OGZ94...SIN=B000OGZ94C

May help a bit without a fan anyway - always worth a try I suppose.

To answer the question though:

I have already bought and installed heat-spreaders, the look similar though lol. Im making my own ram cooler anyway as it is mostly for looks but it should help cool significantly.
