Help me buy a 200mm and a 120mm

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hello I recently made a PC and was silly and forgot to buy extra fans for the case and I come to you guys with 2 questions.

1. what 120mm fan should I get in the $20 price range?
2. what 200mm fan should I get in the $30 price range?

also I dont want them to have any lights just a fan! Here are the 2 fans I am thinking of getting but I will change them in a heartbeat:

120mm
200mm

For 200mm I recommend the Coolermaster Megaflow 200. It moves a ton of air and is pretty silent at 19dba.

That slyp stream fan you posted is not a good fan unless there is no room for a standerd size fan. The one you linked is a 120x12, where as standerd is 120x25. You dont get much choice in the 200mm fan department, so I would get what ever you like. As for the 120MM fan you have TONS of options. What kind of fan do you want/where will it be placed? if its a cooler fan, i recomend a 120x38mm fan, they provide more static pressure(and a little bit more noise) and work amazing as cooler fans. If those are too loud, the Scythe Gental Typhoons are a great for cooling with minimal noise. The TY-140 is a great fan, its a 140x160mm but the mounting holes are 120mm, not sure if it would fit your application, depends on the case.

Absolutely. S-Flex fans are excellent performers, both in acoustics and airflow. I have 4 of them in my case right now, and they are flawless.
I would suggest taking a look at the Thermalright TY-140 fan. It is a 140mm fan with 120mm mounting holes. According to reviews and opinions on OCN, it is really a great performer.

I think that the fan you linked is a good little fan, not the highest flow rate, but from what I have heard(reviews and such) its darn quiet! I will add that the TY-140 is around the same price and noise level with almost twice the airlfow of the fan you linked amazing fan! Note in the size's space in the link, its 160x140x25mm. If this is your case I would use the TY-140 on the side pannel and CM R4 200mm, if you dont like the bluse lights, cut the little power wires going to each one and wrap with electrical tape
