Need Help with computer parts Case fans and CPU Cooling - Page 2

Gentle Typhoons are quiet. Be aware there is no magic, more rpm = more noise. THE 14 s and 15 s seem a good compromise, though the 18 s are popular.

why are you getting the aerocool shark fans? If you already had your mind made up, don't ask for suggestions, those fans are okay at best imo, there are way better and quieter fans for case fans

I've recently switched out all of my case fans for BitFenix Spectres ( no led and non pro version) , they go for around 7 dollars (CAN) and are very silent. The only downside is that they aren't very good rad fans as they spin at relatively low rpms, so for your rad i would either get gentle typhoons (fan controller would make them perfect) or the BitFenix Spectre Pros (already silent when spinning at max rpms)

Then please tell me which case fans that are good for mine?

From what I can find Aerocool Shark fans get more good to excellent ratings than not. Did not find professional reviews.
One reason fans get mixedratings is the frequency (tone) is as important as the loudness to most people.
The applications matter too, different cases can cause different results.

Thermalright makes some of the best quiet fans. Among others.

Well what would be nice for my NZXT Phantom case? and i also do like the thermalright fans. but i just wanna be happy with my choice and the most quietest one.

Thermalright TY or SilentX are good, Silent PC Review SPCR

is worth a look, they do focus on quiet over performance.
I've had good experience using Yate Loon low and medium speed fans, as a low cost option.

newegg Cougar fans got good reviews

There is no definitive answer.

I've purchased various fans on sale (after checking reviews and reccommendations).
My hearing is not the best, so I can not be certain others will agree except for "known" reputations.
So far Thermalright, Yate Loon, Nexus, Arctic Cooling, Phanteks, among others work fine FOR ME.
No use for high performance high rpm fans, or 38 mm thick.
I like PWM fans I can control from the motherboard, rarely needed as I pick carefully.

If your going with the h100 I would just put some corsair SP120 on it. Then put Corsair AF120/140 where else that can mount a fan.
