I've just used whatever generic radiator fan is on the shelf at whatever parts store I'm at.
These fans tend to come with zip-tie kinda things that pull through the core of the radiator. These transfer the vibration from the fan directly to the core of the radiator. That was the last coffin nail in my Loyale rad. Go to your favorite hardware/home improvement store, and buy about 4 feet worth of 1x1/4" aluminum. Cut it into 2 lengths to span across the radiator. Drill holes in the end to bolt it to the edges of the rad, and then holes in the middle to mount the fan to it (zip-ties work great here). This will save your radiator, and space the fan out, which makes it a bit more efficient.
