best 120mm fans for cpu cooler? (around $10)

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Picked up my i5 2500k today and decided to go with the Thermalright MUX120 cooler which was only $40 at Microcenter.

Can you guys recommend me the best 120mm fan currently for cpu coolers?

I dont want it to be super loud, but it also doesnt have to be the quietest fan ever. lol

Id like to stay around $10 each for it because im gonna buy 2 for push/pull setup.

thanks

It will do almost ANY 120mm fan for you, since you wont see too much heat with that CPU/Heatsink, and P/P.
Go for the Scythe Kama Flow2 for example.

For the price you paid for that cooler + fans, you could have bought Thermaltake Frio or Frio OCK, Corsair A70 or even the CM 212+

GELID Solutions GELID Silent 12 PWM are good fans for heatsinks.

These fans are perfect. Silent. Powerful. Cheap.

Cheers

thanks for the suggestions.

Would it be worth it to just buy another Thermalright X Silent 120mm for push/pull since the cooler already comes with one?
