personally if you were to pick a thermaltake fan, i'd go with the 2 ball bearing fan. it's cheaper, and should last as long as the fluid dynamic bearing fan. it's gonna be abit louder, but it will also push more air...
Nice. Thank you very much bud.
Does it have to be 3pin or 4pin?
Also Thermaltake in my experience has been very good bud. Ive had 3 of their 120mm fans spinning for 6+ years now of constant use.
In my eyes TT isnt a cruddy brand.
Also my TT TR2-M12 dropped almost 20 degrees c on my CPU.
They make good stuff.
TT = GOOD in my eyes.
Every component brand I go with has withstood the test of time...
Intel (Although my next build will be AMD for value. Gonna try AMD for once.)
