I have my CM690 advanced II, and I just found my 140mm fan I'll be using: Akasa Apache controlled via fanmate 2, which has good Static pressure for intake, and good cfm when almost at low speed (and sound isn't that bad), and I'll keep my Fractal design 140mm at exhaust (very very silent)
I'm looking for good 120mm fan. I use to have 1x rear exhaust CoolerMaster R4 (Sickeflow blue led) at low speed (cause instead it is noisy) and 1x in push on my zalman CNPS10x at max speed. it cools very wel, bu I want to add one under my DVD-drive, so I can get a 3rd intake.
Since there is the mesh grill and a small stock filter, it need to have a good static pressure, so R4 at full speed will be loud I think. I found: Xigmatek XSF-F1252. Anyone have tested it?
I know for the CPU cooler, a GT AP15 would be perfect, but the price is high to get 3 of those fan (18$ each fan, that makes 54$ for 3 fan, which is a bit expensive)
Any advice? any fan you think could be nice? I'm looking for a bit of silence but performance also. No led fan, Black if possible or grey, or wing white and cover black.
Thanks for any help
