High Performance Cooling Fans

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi could anyone please recommend some 12cm High performance intake and exhaust fans please. I would like them if possible to be blue or blue LED doesn't matter that much about noise just performance.

And also is there any recommended fan control software I can use ?

Thanks Chris

It depends what you mean when you say you don't care about noise

If you really don't, then get a

or something like that, but as far as fans with LEDs in them go, you're pretty limited to lowish RPM fans.

The most compatible fan control software I've used is speedfan, but you're better buying a physical fan controller (or a small variable resistor).

WOW ok maybe I should rephrase my question

I need some good 12cm case cooling fans that don't have to be completely silent but don't sound like this
