Quiet Fans to replace Antec Tri-cool fans on P182?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I would like to replace the two exhaust fans on my Antec P182 case, as I feel the Tri-Cools on low setting at too loud. Both are 120mm.

I was thinking Noctua, Sharkoon or Nexus.

Whats generally a good exhaust fan, with low noise levels? One fan will be horizontal, and the other vertical.

Thanks.

which is your DBa limit?

I would look into these for their very nice CFM but also for being nearly inaudible.

Silent Wings 2 120mm fan - 51CFM @ 16DbA

I am note sure, I dont have any form of meter to measure current noise levels to set a baseline dBA.....

Be Quiet! makes awesome low-noise fans. Cheaper alternative would be Bitfenix's Spectre or Spectre Pro fans.

I would second the Scythe Slip Streams:
http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=36_49_1043&products_id=22542

800 RPM = 10db & 40 CFM is a good combo and they have lasted me for years. Cheaper than some of the others and the above link is sleeved.

Slips are good case fans, but they dont like being horizontal.
