quietest/best 80mm case fan

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
i need a new 80mm fan cause the one ive got right now (Thermaltake A2016) sounds like a jet engine and its started making a scraping noise on top of that. anybody got any suggestions?

also, the rest of my case it lit up w/ led so colored fans are cool too.

Clean the fan, i bet that will solve the problem of the "scratching". As for the jet sound, well maybe try and run it off 5v.
