Looking for some very quiet fans

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm thinking of getting some SilenX fans because I want something quiet. In particular, these:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835226034 - 80mm
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835226042 - 120mm

In addition to these mounts: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811996015

Are these good for the money? Any better alternatives for around the same price?

they actually come with those "rubber screws", and yes they are not the best, but decent for the money. Also pretty nice are Enermax TB Silence and Bitfenix Spectre Pro, the enermax would be my favourite value-silent fans

Yea I definitely second the Spectre Pros. Got a pair of the 140mm ones and I have to say I am quite impressed. They are quiet at full rpm's and practically inaudible when turned down with a fan controller. They blow a good amount of air and the all white ones look awesome!

The annoying thing is that I can now hear my hard drive spinning after replacing all of my fans when I am on idle... and I don't have money to drop on a full ssd system.

I am in the market for some quiet fans as well since my parents complained about the noise in my desktop. Might look into Enermax TB Silence and Bitfenix Spectre Pro fans.
