Recommend some Case Fans

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I recently ordered everything for my new sig rig and was wondering if anybody could recommend some good case/heatsink fans. For case fans, I've got 2x 120mm and 1x 140mm. For the heatsink, I was wondering if it was worth replacing the stock fans on the d14. The only real reason for replacing the heatsink fans is because I hate that damn color. Overall, I'm looking for the best performance while also maintaining the lowest noise possible. I will be overclocking both the cpu and gpu once they arrive.

If you really want to change fans on your heatsink and are looking for low noise good performance i would look at PMW fans.

I'm using the Noiseblocker M-12P fans which in my opinion are great but hard to attach, thats all i can recommend for fans.
You should look up some fan roundup reviews.

EDIT:
Forgot to mention PMW fans are fans that have variable speeds so it will speed up when things get hotter.

My sig rig doesn't seem to be updating for me. I've looked up some reviews on different fans and was thinking of going ap-15 but heard there were better case fans even though they may be my best choice for heatsink fans since they seem to be quiet when used in that way.

Edit. I do understand that PWM fans are dynamic based on temps. I was also wondering if there were some good 140mm fans since thats the hole that will be in my top panel. Most reviews seem to highlight 120s.
