The Kurobox case has a built in 40mm fan, which can run at variable speeds controlled through the microcontroller. Variable speeds means either slow or fast.

The fan used in the Kurobox is a ADDA AD0412LX-G76 which measures 40mm x 40mm x 10mm. By looking at the model number, we can extract it's information:

AD ADDA brushless DC fan
04 DC Frame size: 40mm
12 DC Voltage: 12VDC
L Speed: Low
X Bearing Type: HYPRO bearing
G Thickness: 10mm
7 Impeller number: 7 blades
6 Motor protective circuit & Third lead wire: by transistor with speed sensor (FG)
[blank] Fan type: Standard

Kurouto Shikou in Japan sells a replacement parts kit for about 3000 yen, which includes a replacement fan, however you should be able to replace it with another fan with the same physical dimensions. However, if you go this route, you will need to make physical modifications to the wire leads.
