120x20mm

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
sorry if this is not the right section location for fans but im looking for a low noise 120x20mm fan to put in my sig rig case directly behind the cpu so only thing i can find is the scythe 800rpm but most places discontinued. i need to find one with between 15 to 18db and the cfm is not a big deal just somethign quiet but performs well.

Slim, performs well and quiet do not belong in the same paragraph.

Thinner blades need to spin faster to push more air, and that causes more noise.

Not sure if any "good" slims exist.

Just buy any slim fan and either use your mobo to control its speed (if that's an option), or use a fan controller.

Why do you need to see the RPMs?

Does it have to be a 120x20? There is a very limited selection with that size. If you could jump up to a 120x25mm fan, your selection increases exponentially.

Something like this might work for you. http://www.frozencpu.com/products/9300/fan-574/Cooler_Master_SickleFlow_R4_Series_120x25mm_Super_Silent_Fan_-_Dark_Smoke_-_R4-C2R-20AC-GP.html?tl=g36c15s60

well with the case in my sig the company decided to make the distance from the right side panel to the back of the motherboard 24 to 23mm give or take. so that is why im in the hunt for 20mm. i have 120x25mm lieing around to see it would fit and i could not close the right side panel. if it will be a regular size 25mm thick fan im gonna stick with cougar vortex fans. i have 5 of there 140 1200rpm fans and they are dead silent. the best silet fan i have ever bought.
