Good 120/140mm non-sleeve bearing fans

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I need some horrizontal mounted fans and since most of the most popular fans seem to be sleeve bearing i'm kind of lost, i would like a good performance to sound ratio.

I need 2 for top exhaust and 1 for bottom intake.

Scythe Gentle Typhoon 120mm 1450rpm: Best noise to airflow fan I've ever used. Will last a long time an d can be mounted any which way.

Enermax T.B Silence 120mm/140mm: Move a goodly amount of air (though not as much as the GT) and are very quiet. Their twister bearing is suitable for mounting any which way.

Nzxt Rifle Bearing 120mm/140mm: Pretty cheap but not bad. A little loud for my tastes but that might not be the case for you. Rifle bearing allows them to be mounted a few ways.

TY-140: Mounts with 120mm holes but is a 140mm fan. Moves a lot of air and is very quiet. Another great fan.

Noiseblockers are great fans as well, although they're rather pricey. They come in both 120mm and 140mm varieties.

Aren't the Scythe GT's sleeve bearing?

Dual ball bearing.

Scythe Slipstreams are sleeve bearing though.

Are the noise blockers worth their price? Or would i be better off with the Scythe GT's?
