Case Fans...

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
~~~ Cross-posted into the AMD Air Cooling section, also!! ~~~

Okay, so I have a 'whining' case fan. At least, I'm pretty sure it's a case fan. Nonetheless, I'll be trouble-shooting the exact culprit either later tonight, or tomorrow.
(I'm hoping it's a case fan, cuz if not, I've got a hard drive in some serious trouble!)

Now, even if I can fix the (presumed) case fan, I'm wanting to get some newer ones. I currently have a front intake, side-window-panel intake (I think it's set as intake, not exhaust ), and two rear exhausts -- all 80mm.

I need suggestions for good brands/models of 80mm fans that are efficient (in their cfm ratings) and not too loud (preferrably under 30-35 dbA). I've spent lots of time going through NewEgg trying to find some types that stick out, but there's just so d@mn many, it's hard to make sense of it after a while.


So, I figured I'd get communal opinions on what you all have/ARE using that work well, move air, and aren't too loud.

Thanks all!

I used to use Thermaltake SmartfanII's..........noisy at full speed but they have speed control.
