Recommended power supply? - Page 9

They're overpriced, underperform and are overly noisy. If you want, I can link you to multiple reviews that say the same thing. I really wouldn't recommend them to anyone.

Can you link me to what you recommend for 120mm fans of similar price? I don't really care very much about loudness. Just want the most cooling for my money.

I am able to get anything locally from here: http://pricespy.co.nz/category.php?k=370&o=produkt_pris_inkmoms#rparams=l=s105242490
Or from eBay if that is a better option.

As for the noise I have 6 Betfinex Pros in my pc and 2 corsair sp 120s i can put my ear up to the bitfenix and her nothing but the corsairs I can here at 1800 RPM and im 5 feet from my desk to my pc. Reason for me buying them is the look so good and trust me I dont have any over heating problems at all

Tator Tot on the Spectre Pros, 140mm review, and 120mm review. Like I said, they're overpriced and underperform and reviews back that up. I wanted to like them when I had them, but I just couldn't. There are better fans out there for the money. Even a cheap Rosewill RFA-120 or RFX-120 is a better option.

My 140s were loud at anything greater than 7v. Noise is subjective though. To me, they were completely unacceptable, much louder and worse sounding than my Cougar Vortex fans and current Prolimatech Blue Vortex fans.

lol I only have 1 of them that is a 140 its my front fan and I can't hear it at all. Now your talking My wife bought all cougar Vortex's for her cooler master Haf XM case I do have to agree if my motherboard was not yellow and black I would choice the Cougars over any fan, they puch a ton of air and look good as well. I wanted to go with a black and orange theme when I started this buid but I choice the Z77 Msi- Mpower board so I didnt thank that the orange would go good with the board frown.gif

I have a 1x230mm 3x200mm 1x140mm Bitfenix Spectre Pro fans and the 230mm and 200mm fans are okey but the 120mm/140mm version are crap you have to turn them all the way up to feel any air comming from them and at that point them make a hell of a noise no the 120mm/140mm Bitfenix Spectre Pro fans are not very good the only good point about them is that they look great

I dont know that many fans but if they are for case fans i will say the good old Noctua NF-P12 they are a bit ugly yes but i have tons of those fans i use 2 on my heatsink and out of more then 50 i have worked with 1 broke down.
They move much more air then the Bitfenix Spectre Pro fans the only other fans that comes into my mind is the Corsair AF series and the Scythe Gentle Typhoon but i have never had or worked with those
