Ok, so Silverstone fans are not really recommended in this case? Would the noise be of a hummy fashion? I owned a Silverstone FT02-W at one point, and none of the 180mm / 120mm air penetrator fans that came with it were particularly quiet. This Define R4 is quite good at masking certain frequencies, but low bassy hum is still quite audible, as are high whiny frequencies. And what would your recommendation for the rear exhaust fan be? (140mm preferably). Something better than an undervolted Phanteks 140mm fan, if I can find such a thing.
(And finally, what do you think of Noctua's new NF-A14 FLX as case airflow fans?) Thank you again!!!
A14-FLX are definitely good fans. Haven't even started testing on them yet (I decided to do all the 120's, then start the 140's) but my subjective ear tests says they're just as good as the box says and the only downside is the minute bearing noise the F12's have.
For the rear of your case, if you want the quietest possible, then I would go for a Zaward Golf III 140mm fan.
You can hear in that vid the bearing noise from the AP141's.
