Replacement fan recommendations please

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Damn! When I was changing something inside my case I broken a fan blade on the rear fan.

The specs are:
120 x120 x 25 mm Turbo fan (1300rpm,17dBA) with three pins.

Looking for a good/reasonable quality replacement fan that is quiet.

Suggestions please.

Cheers
Ric

I like this one, personally.

And this one is good, especially for exhaust.

Thanks for the suggestions. Unfortunately both are 4 pin, not three. And I am not sure if they would be quiet as the one that I am replacing.

Also, I should have stated that it needs to be 120mm by 25mm.

you can use any 4 pin fan with your 3-pin mobo headers, and if you have 4 pin mobo headers you can use 3 pin fans. all are compatible with each other so dont sweat it, for exhaust fan's you can use 3pin 4pin or 4pin molex and be just fine AP-13 to AP-15's. some of the best noise to flow ratio fans around! worth the money.

Remember if you do this, though, that the 4th pin is pulse width modulation (speed control), so if you use a 3 pin header the fan will be locked open at full speed.
