Fans lianli stock fans good?

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Hi I'm putting a new build together and I need a few fans.

Probably most important is what I want in a fan. In the Price-CFM-Db relationship I fall in the section that prioritizes performance (CFM) and silence (Db) over cost.

Next, my case (a Lian Li) will have 5 fans and then 2 for cpu/heatsink.

The 5 case fans (3x 120mm, 2x 140mm) are lian li, are those good enough to stay? Or should I replace them? (I haven't got the case yet)

Now for the heatsink fans (120mm) I have a few thoughts, first I'd like to have LEDs somewhere in my case so I'd like them to have LEDs, other than that anything's game. I've looked at:

GELID Solutions FN-FW12BPL http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835426024
XIGMATEK Cooling System Crystal Series CLF-F1251 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835233048
Antec 761345-75024-0 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835209011

and some others, but really I just went to newegg looked up 120mm blue fans and found the more expensive ones which probably isn't the best way to find a good fan. People said the GELID were overpriced and the sound was low but it wasn't like a whoosh it had turbulance, which is more annoying. The XIGMATEK look good to me.

So does anyone have any suggestions?

What Lian Li case are you looking at?

IMHO, the stock fans are very good. I would check them out first before replacing them.

Both of those fans seem good, I really like the NZXT but its not on Newegg! I wish I could see a price for those.

Its also strange that the sickleflows don't show up using regular newegg search, its like they're called something different. I had to google them haha.

I used a Lian Li case in my first build and if I recall correctly, the stock fans were re-branded Yate Loons (I can't remember if they were highs or mediums), but basically they are budget fans with decent performance. But if you have the extra money, might be worth to get some quieter and higher CFM fans thumb.gif

Agreed I have two CM Sickleflows and they are great compared to the fans that I used to have.

Hmm I think I should get 4pin PWM fans, and I just realized that none of these fans are. Any recommendations on those types of fans?

Sweet, yeah I don't need LEDs I guess, I'll get 5 of those (2 orange for the CPU fans, 3 black for case).

I need 2 140mm ones now. The XIGMATEK XAF-F1456 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835233096) look pretty good, anyone know much about it?
