Buying online/Best case fans?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I've been thinking about getting a few more case fans. I currently have just 1 exhaust fan on the rear. I wanted to know what 120mm fans would be the best?

I've heard good things about CoolerMaster R4's and Noctua NF-P12

What do you guys think about these fans?

I was also thinking about buying them online to save some money. I'm sure some of you have bought parts online before. Which sites do you suggest I buy from online? I live in Australia.

Fan controllers Not too loud then and looks nice if you get quality controllers. I like to have the ability to move air if I need it.

Could you suggest a good controller?

Noctua NF-P12's are more suited to Coolers/Radiators rather than case fans. NF-S12b FLX is more suited to case application. Noctua fans typically dont push massive amounts of air but they are quiet, very reliable and butt ugly.

Okay. I'm currently looking at a fan controller, Hyper 212 + and 2 delta fans.

PC Case Gear have Scythe 120mm Gentle Typhoon 1850rpm Fans

Don't bother with delta+fan controller.

Ditch the fan controller, and get some Scythe 120mm Gentle Typhoon 1850rpm Fans. They push ALOT of air SILENTLY. Overclock.net favourites.

Keep the hyper 212+.

Exactly what I was going to say. If you can find AP15s decently prized then pull the trigger on them for sure!
