Im hearing good things about the cougars. Noctuas have always been good value. I have no info on the nzxts.

Id suggest either of those two would be good and it may just come down to your budget.

Are you going push / pull?

Personally, I have always had Scythe AP 15s on my h100...

Highly recommend the cougars, they real quiet at the highest rpms & provide excellent cooling. I like the orange blades too,they really pop

The Cougar's look good. Shame about the AP-15s.
post #6 of 16
i would definitely recommend the cougars, have had them on my 920 since day not and not a single problem. Ultra quiet and the pwm function is quite nice and they push a good amount of air. thumb.gif and bec i like to be odd and such i love the orange color even if it doesnt mesh with the rest of my system

Just be aware that many people have had problems with Cougar fans when using them to blow air upward. The bearing just doesn't like it.

A few other options, all of which are double ball bearing fans...
- Koolance 120x25mm 2800rpm fans (107cfm/5.4mmHg)
- Bgears Blasters (103cfm/3.5mmHg)
- Anything by Sanyo Denkei
- Gentle Typhoon AP15/AP29

I'm probably going to be buying these for my H100 setup:

They've got great static pressure.

~snip~

You mean they dont like being in a horizontal plane? Scythe slipsteams have that problem with the fluid bearings as well.

The first Ive heard about that with the Cougars frown.gif
