Hey fellas, need some assistance.
in the market for a pair (2x) of case fans to be used horizontally as top exhaust.
entered in my requirements in newegg filters and sorted it out to around 71 choices : clicky here newegg
-any bearing but sleeve
-$0-$25 max price but really looking to spend no more than $15 per fan
-30 or less dBA levels
-colored fans and or LED fans have priority over simple black fans BUT it is in no way/shape/form a deal breaker
does anybody have any recommendations from there? I'd like to stick to newegg but I can do amazon (depending if theres tax involved or not)
do round-framed fans mount the same way as typical square fans? any mounting holes/distances i should look out for?
the rosewill hyperborea seems to have a insane cfm to noise to price ratio ..... any thoughts on this?

I don't know if Cougar makes a 140version of their leading fan, but it would be good too.
Round frames should be fine as long as you have enough clearance (just measure your clearances first befween the fans).
If you're into LEDs Cougar is the way to go. They're one of the few I know that use Fluid dynamic bearings inside their LED fans
Aerocool shark is actually an improved rifle bearing , as is Bitfenix spectre pro http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/The-Truth-About-Fluid-Dynamic-Bearing-FDB-Fans/1807/2
Phobya G silent 14 may also be worth looking into.
